I guess a more specific question is this. If two identical trucks had the same load, one with stock OL springs in place and the other removed, would they both squat the same or would the one without the OL springs squat more?

Based on what you said above I would think they would squat the same up until the payload reached the weight at which the OL springs typically come into contact with the rest of the spring pack. And then any additional weight would cause the truck without OL springs to squat more because there is no OL to assist. Is that correct? If it is, here's the million dollar question. How much weight does it take to reach this point?
