I just did a search of his posts. You are correct. He posted pictures on 9/15/2010 of the 'C' notch he did to the rear frame rails. I'm not sure why he posted the old frame rail pictures five days later and asked the question about the springs. Probably just a slip of the finger on the keyboard when selecting the photo(s) to post.

That being said; since the frame rails have been 'C' notched, You can safely remove about half of the leaves from each spring stack. Try every other one except the main leaf. Additional leaves can be removed/added to get the travel you wish.
