cracked leaf springs

i recently had to replace cracked leaves in the spring packs on both sides of my truck after i was done i noticed that 2 of my ubolt nuts on the drivers side went on to just barely past the end of the bolt. all the other nuts went to 4-5 threads past the end. is this cause for concern? p.s. everything went back together fine. the packs are pinned in the middle and seated on rear end. everything is torqued and retorqued. am i just being neurotic

That's pretty grim, when you replace the broken ones have the existing looked at because they have been subjected to a greater amount of undue stress, you might find the cause of what broke the ones you have. Good luck
