At least you’re doing it right! I wish I had a sandblaster at home and a lift, lol.
I tried to sandblast, it is my go to, but the sticky, gooey stuff required 36 grit on a die grinder. It was very tough to remove, Im stoked to be through one now...

Thanks for the photo of the spring pack disassembled. I have had mine in the garage about a year+ now. Appears prep work before install is a good idea. One upping the thread with application of Low friction UHMW tape after paint. https://www.mcmaster.com/76445A725/ Owners of different off road vehicles claim the UHMW tape works great.

I can't give you a number due to the fact that I installed both the plus 4 s and shackles at the same time. I would speculate 1.5 inch drop. My truck lifted 1 inch in the rear with the plus 4s and shackles combined. Very happy with the result. Truck is transformed into beast mode 5. Lol..
