So I already have 3" blocks in the rear of my trac, but i still wanna get rid of the wheel gap. I used to be lifted, and read of people using the 4dr leafs for lift, but they only got lift because of the monoleafs sagging.

I've been doing research and found that the rear leafs on the sports are mono with some sort of spacers on them to make up for not having the extra leafs. Is there any way to take out my leaf pack and just put in the mono leaf?

It should be pretty much a no-brainer. Its a straight swap between 4-door leaves and Sport leaves.
 






but get new leafs, not a bagged out set of used ones, ot it will sag too much, and have no ride to the bumpstops,
 






i dont know why ford did that wth the sports. But IMO mono leafs are the worst thing ever for a truck especially with out the overload spring. I have seen so many mono leafs snap its not even funny. Granted most were on air ride or juice though.
