How many leafs in a stock F 350 dually spring pack?

I have a 95 F350 cc dually 4x2 if any of that matters. I need to know how many leafs the rear spring packs should have. I bought this truck used and it has some added. I just need to know how many to take out. My truck currently has 9 including all of the overload springs and such. I took the utility bed off of the truck and just picked up my dually bed. No it has some serious Texas tilt. How many does yalls have? Thanks JJ

Thanks. That is exactlly what I needed to see. I have what you have in the top picture plus the overload, plus 4 additional leafs in the pack. She has quite a bit of Texas tilt. I went out and took a quick picture. I have a guy that is wanting to buy this truck. If he ends up getting it I will leave it alone for him because he is going to pull his gooseneck with it. If I end up keeping it I will drop it like yours is. Did you use drop spindles for the front?The only thing I would be pulling with this one would be a car hauling trailer with a 2800lb rock crawler on it. Here is a picture with what I am starting with. JJ

I used 3" drop I-beams up front, and 4" hanger/shackle kit in the rear and another 1" takin out of the leaf springs personallt I still think it sits to high so I will drop it 2" in the front with coils and 3" in the rear with new springs and I will run helper bags over the axle!!!!

Could your truck have originally been a chassis cab they put alot of leafs in those springs from the factory!!!

Later,

Thanks, when I bought the truck it had a pickup bed on it so it is not a cab n chassis. You can see every other leaf is different the way it is cut on the ends. I think the construction company that had it before me had the springs redone to haul their goose necks. JJ
