Suspension Stops

I have an 06 F350 2 wheel drive dually I was underneath the truck the other day changing the transmission filter and I noticed that the front suspension bumper stops have less than an inch before they make contact, is this normal or somthing I need to fix?

Sounds like the front springs may have sagged some. I would think it should have more travel than that.

Sounds normal to me. Spring could have sagged some, but not a lot.
