Leaf springs shot?

Hey guys,
I tried searching for this and didn't see anything so if someone could help me out with this question it would be greatly apreciated.

I measured the gap between my wheels and the top of my wheelwell today and found that my rear is sitting about an inch lower than my front end. This really suprised be because I know most trucks and cars are opposite than that.

I have not noticed this before but today it looked noticeably lower, that is why I measured..
Thanks in advance

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
