Leaf spring question

Alright guys a couples weeks ago I got in a head on collision. I took my truck to the shop for body and frame work, but when it back it still sagged on the drives side. I talked to the guy and asked him what the deal was and he said the leaf spring was bent, and it is you can just look at it and tell. Of course my insurance wont cover it but anyways. My question is if i buy a brand new leaf spring will it sit higher than the other side. My truck has a little over 250k miles on it and I would figure that the other side probably doesnt have the strength it did when it was band new. They want $220 dollars for a brand new one and I found a used one for $100. Any suggestions?

Buy them in pairs, you'll be happier.

E99 SCLB XLT, Stock steel, Firestone Transforce, Leveled, Timbren, Muffler Delete, Gutted Cat, 6637, 8'6 Western, Cab rack, PHP Phoenix

What a great truck. Hauls, plows, and tows everything I need it to. I drive it like a grandpa and take great care of it.

Well I have 2.5'' mini packs right now, I really cant afford two brand new leaf springs right now, you think two of the used ones would work?

As long as they are a "pair" you will be ok.
