sagging rear spring?

is this a common issue? My right rear spring is sagging a bit and dragging the right front down with it.....need to replace it asap cause my truck looks stupid

2007 XL CC,DRW,4x4.

When I die I wanna go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandpa, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

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.
