With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

my friend was telling me that because these trucks are supposed to have springs like that with zero lift from the factory because the leafs are above the axle. is that true? because if it is i think the springs are supposed to look like that

From what I remember, my springs sat flat. Your in the pics, look like they might be slightly inverse?

My orig. ones looked just like that, the new TSB ones also do. Looks to me like the only reason they are looking inverse is b/c of the space made by the plastic isolators on the ends of the leafs and no space between the leafs at the axle.

Yeah, first gen leaf springs (OEM) have a reverse arch appearance.

But the leafs should be tight againest eachother.

Did you ever haul or tow anything really really heavy?

I'd be concerned about the spaces inbetween the leafs.

If you're in doubt...just buy another set of leaf springs. Lots of aftermarket ones available and they're pretty inexpensive and you can find writeups on how to install.
