your theory on moving them up works for solid links like a 3 link. that is not how leafs work. a solid link pushes the car like your thinking, but leafs dont.
leafs wrap up under acceleration. they need to be at a certain angle in order to wrap properly.
the front eye should be 9.5 lower than the rear eye. this should put the angle about correct.
if you adjust using mulitple holes you should be doing it on both ends so the leafs stay at the same angle. on dirt we should run as little lowering block as possible.
Just for your info,
when you move only one end of the leafs you gain half what you move in ride ht.thats why I moved my front down 2 and rear is going up one, that will leave me about stock but now at the correct angle.
If anything I like the leafs to have more difference in height than less.
theres info on leaf mounting on landrums site.
Im going to run parabolics also, I have ran them on pavement and they are really rated softer than a multi, so Im planning to start with 225 on both.
how much rear percent do you run,and whats your total wt, how old are your parabolics. wondering if mine will work out, I dont think with these leafs as much rear wt will be needed because they are so soft?
