Default question about the 64 in. chevy leaf swap

I want to do the 63 in or 64 in chevy leaf spring swap with the shackle flip. What I don't understand in the thread on TRS is....Why were they re-arched 12" and doesn't that shorten them. Were they re-arched for more lift or what?

its not for my 2010...its gonna be done on my 89-92. I liked the idea of the extra travel when you do the shackle flip.

i just swapped some chevy leafs in, just you have to move the front perches up because the center bolt that holds the chevy leafs together is back about 2-4 inches
just a thought
