Your leafs look like this?

Hey guys. Do your leaf spring eyes look like this on your truck? I'm talking about the gap in the eye. Does this look normal? Your leafs look like this?-imageuploadedbyautoguide1362764017.247177.jpg

Trying to determine if I need new leafs or not. Probably little sag but not much.

Yep. My springs are brand new and that's how they are supposed to sit.

Like stated above, it's a wrap designed to allow you to limp home if the main leaf breaks.

Your leafs look like this?

Awsome guys thanks for the info. I just learned something today! Haha. I felt like an idiot for asking that cause its kinda obvious. But glad I'm my the only one.

Now what to do to get this front end lifted an inch or two. Sag doesn't look that bad. Can't decide weather to go with body lift or add a leafs. Drive this thing maybe a two thousand miles a year. Just want it to look badass.

Is your truck a 250 or a 350? If it's a 250 does it still have the ttb front axle?

I would just go with an add-a-leaf. It will give you 1.5 - 2". MAY even help the ride. Just dont forget to get an alignment afterwards
