Rear leaf springs

New to this forum so please excuse the dumb questions. I have a 04 Tacoma DC 4x4 SRE. The rear leaf springs seem to be arched in the wrong direction. The axle point is higher than the leaf mounts. It this the way they came from the factory? I want to lift it 3 inches and when I say this I was a bit confused. Anyone??

They're shot and need replacement.

No, that is not how they come from the factory. You have negative arch. If you take a picture and upload it to this it will be easier to tell you. If you want to lift your truck, I would recommend just getting a whole new leaf pack such as Dakar's or All Pro's depending on how you want to lift it.
