Whether you leave the OL spring on or remove it, doesn't really make any difference. So if you're ok with leaving it then you should be ok removing it. You seem to have a misconception that the OL leaf does something for the rest of the spring pack, when not overloaded. The OL spring is only contributing once you flatten the above springs out parallel to the OL spring. You can also remove the OL leaf and if it doesn't work out how you want still get the drop leafs.

Personally, I'd remove the OL leaf and see how I liked it. My only concern would be when hauling very heavy loads. But I'd have that concern with drop leafs too(as I'm sure they will not hold as much weight).
