leaf spring question

Hi. Does anyone with a diesel and NEW v codes or x codes have a side view photo of the front of their truck they could post? I am trying to get a visual idea how much arch each of these different springs has with the weight of the truck on them. Thanks for any help here.

I am pretty sure there is a difference in arch as well so that they would be able to fit in the average persons garage

Having been all over here in so calif to search for my springs (v and b) i learned a few things. I would suggest if you want to go beefer just have a spring shop add another spring to the v code pack. V's are proven and they work, but adding another spring would just stiffen it up thats all.

X codes will lift the truck 1.5"+ over new V codes. They have additional arch.
