What's Wrong With My Leaf's?

My leafs are squeaking after a recent trip in the mountains and I know lots of people complain about that, but look at these pictures and tell me whats wrong. I think they are spent, but need your input...thanks in advance. BTW, I did add a Deaver AAL about a year ago to the stock pack.

The AAL is probably causing the squeaking. Mine started to squeak after i installed my AAL.

Std. leaf degradation.
My overloads were almost contacting completely with the aal and the rest of the pack.
I do have lot's of weight in it so I guess better ones are needed in the future.

Looks like you already flipped the stock overload leaf. That's the cause of the squeak. Never should have done that. Should have bit the bullet and installed new leafs.

^ the over load spring looks positioned correctly to me
I think yer confusing an over load spring with an add a leaf spring.

But yeah.. those springs look tired.

Squeaks can normally be associated
with the springs eye bushings...
and even the shocks eye bushings.

lube those up when replacing the springs.

So, I've been following this forum for a bit since I just got my 2013 2.7l 4x4 regular cab. First off I love the truck but this past weekend I put about 480lbs of cement in the back and I noticed a harsh and noisy ride. I unloaded the bed and I noticed the back of the truck sagging. I didn't measure it before the load but it is considerably lower without it, especially on one side (left).The back suspension was making noise with the load and now without. I'm pissed! I called Toyota customer service and got a case number. I made an appointment to go back to the dealer this week. I know of the TSB for the other model years but has anybody had similar problems with any of the 2013's???
