    R U sure you counted right (i know stupid question)? Also, look at the part numbers, they left all the stickers on mine with part numbers and I verified by counting and checking the numbers.

    I have heard of having extra parts left over when doing a job but it is usually a bolt or two. But having an extra leaf left over? That should have sent a red flag up.

    Don't worry about pics bro- If the two springs don't looke the same- They hosed it up. The springs might have slightly different arches or materials from side to side but they should have the same number of leaves.

    The dealership screwed up when they installed mine. A bolt was put in wrong and the spring pack had to be removed and reinstalled.

    1 bun lo action FTL! 1/2 ass craziness. You actually have to try extremely hard to be that lame. (I mean the dealership) Sorry, but as was stated, check your shit before you leave especially on external stuff like this. That is truly some lame dealership bullshit. REALLY, that's the best they can do, WTF? Get some free all weather mats of exh tip or bike mounts or cai just for your wasted time & the possibility of badness later if you not seen it. They have assume liability for sending unfinished shit out on the road. That's just as bad as the bartender or party host sending people out on the road too drunk to drive. It could negatively impact a host of completely innocent people. Maybe not leafs but imagine what complicated shit they half ass if they can't do this simple swap. These stories are just to frequent now days to let slide & not voice some disgust about, sorry. Hope it all get's done correctly & you score something extra for your unneccessary trouble from them.
