Rear Leaf Springs?

Hi, I have a 95 psd 2wd crew cab dually. I believe there may have been extra leaves added to my rear springs. All the trucks I see on the road here sit level, my truck sits about 5" higher in the rear. I'm wondering how many leaves should be in my spring pack. Mine has 9 including the overload spring. If this is correct, how may springs and which springs should I remove to level the truck. Thanks in advance for any help.

Jason

You should have 4 and 1 helper spring. I think the F-superdutys came wit 9 or 10. Maybe someone swapped them. If all of the springs look alike they are probably from a SD and you may want to get some from a stocker or try removing the shortest ones first. If some are different looking, remove them. You could also use some from a 250 and place the helper spring back on top.

I am not sure about the 95, but on the sd there was an option for a heavy haul package. It included heavier springs, and lower gears, and I believe shocks it lifted the rear by several inches.
