Thanks man I will look into them also for as much as I know about these trucks I could swear that my front leaf springs look like a real flat W and im pretty sure there not supposed to lol then agian it could just be me but I could swear that they go down alittle on both sides front and back alittle but the truck sits even and rides fine and they arent broken what do you think maybe its just me but maybe they are weak.

Thanks for the clairification I was sure I wasnt goin crazy but its just looked wierd you would think the po would have done a good lift but im coming to find that it was just add leafs and shocks not an actuall full lift kit.

If you get just basic arched springs for it, its gonna ride rough. Just like in a lift kit. Something to keep in mind.
