Do I need to change springs?

Hi everyone,
I was checking alignment at the local shop and realicedd that my leafsprings are a little bent. Do you guys think is time to buy new ones? Do they HAVE to be ford or can I just go to the local shop and get ones for the width and lenght?

hereīs a picture. The truck is just sitting, no loads. My truck has 226.000 KMS, itīs a F350 ī03

thanks a lot

my 04 front springs are the same way, instead of being arched they have a s bend to them and i was wondering the same thing. im saving up for x code springs so hopefully ill have the money soon. by the way when spinning tires in 4wd does your front end wheel hop?? mine does all the time time and im wondering if thats whats causing the s hape to form.

Thats what they look like stock, shop is nuts. If you want to gain 2" just get X codes from Ford. I wouldn't get aftermarket springs. You will need a adj track bar and longer shocks.
