Leaf springs look...wrong..

My truck doesn't seem to be sagging or anything, but the leaf springs seem to be flat. For some reason, I remember my leaf springs bending more. Could you post a picture of your leaf springs or just tell me what they are supposed to look like. I'm worried I'm going to have to replace mine.

Go park next to a truck identical to yours and have a look.

Inherent to the vehicle....
Here's mine three months off the lot. I qualified for the TRD 4 Leaf Pack TSB.
I see you're out of warranty, so an AAL (Add-A-Leaf) would be your best option, short of a new leaf pack.
The pic is from a thread I started a couple years ago (link below), asking the same question as your's.
More Pics in my Gallery

Do my 2010 Leaf Springs look like they need the TSB ???


EDIT: w/ 200lb load


Good Luck
