Leaf Springs

How many leaf springs are on a factory 2001 F250 4x4 7.3 PS? Here are some pics of mine... A local mechanic said it is suppose to have 2 mine has 5 and i'm wondering if that is causing it to be lower on one side compared to the other side?

I have the same issue on a 2002, passenger side front. Looks like the spring is de-arching on mine, so I think...

The short leafs are part of a mini-spring pack designed to level the front end.

I dont remember if my '03 has 2 or 3 leafs OEM. I had heard that diesels had 3 leafs where gas had 2 - but its not substantiated.

I'd go with 2 as OEM unless someone else chimes in.
