In between my rear leaf spring, doesnt look like like anything horrid, but doesnt look right...a start of the saggy ass syndrome? I would like to think not becuase its a OME 2.5", but who knows.

Thoughts?

I have both tiny spaces and SAS so things aren't looking great for you.

Have you hauled something heavy, cause I did once and I think I bent my leafs a tiny bit. 22ft boat. Bad idea.

Just as a precaution, i'd check torque on the u bolt nuts.
And as fer a load damaging the spring pack, it would either have to be obscenely heavy, or be there for a really long time

The longest spring has a subtle bend in it right before the eye on each side. I've got an add a leaf coming and I'm going to try and bend them back before reassembling the spring pack.

And it was obscenely heavy, but not for very long. After the first hill I realized I had the wrong rig.
