SOA Leafs

I am going SOA and was originally planning on using stock springs with an added main leaf from another stock spring. Will that extra leaf make a big difference in terms of flex, lift, longevity.? Pretty much is it worth the extra cash for a whole nother set?

I picked it off of a a buddy. Not sure the brand, but he says its MORE. Its definitely not the one they are selling now. Maybe its an old one? doesnt really matter to me, its well made and it was $50
