Rear leaf spring question...

So, for those of you with Ex's, are your springs pretty much flat? Mine seem to have no arch. Normal?

I have a thread in the suspension section regarding "Excursion spring issues" and could use some help...

Funny that I was under the front end yesterday and wondered the exact same thing. My front springs appear to be flat. Not sure if that is the "Norm" but everything seems to be okay.
BTW, I have the same "Ex". looks good. I work for the Navy and am heading to San Diego this Tues. Will be staying at the Crowne Plaza. Hope someone can give us a good answer on the springs.

Sinister Delete, New Parts: New shocks, HPOP, IPR, Oil Pump, Oil Cooler, 8 Injectors, Reprogrammed PCM and new Moog Ball joints, Now I need to upgrade the suspension and add gauges. Oh yeah, I need to remove that little light bulb behind the CEL slot on the dash
Maybe I will attempt the HankDaddy mod

Stock Ex. springs are not rated for a Diesel, many upgrades should be done to fix the suspension. result can be a fantastic riding and handling truck. I've developed many of these mods and have helped hundreds across the country, PM me if I can help.
