not real common for these trucks ..just depends on how hard they were worked

I just gave away mine and they were mint

they can re arch them or just get a good used set and plan on replacing the sliders and such if you want them to be like new

Not a known problem as far as I know. My 2007 works great but isn't DRW like yours.

I can get new for $150 a side.....just wondering if I should go to a 5 leaf instead of a 4 leaf to keep it from happening again. I looked at it just a minute ago and one of the leafs is off center from the rest.....now I am thinking it's a broken leaf.
