    Are all the leafs on the pack supposed to be 100% in contact with the leaf on top and underneath? I noticed that there is a gap between my 2nd and 3rd leaf (top to bottom). It's not a huge gap, but I did notice that the 2 leafs were 100% in contact with each other.

    I will post pics if it's easier to determine if they're ok or not. I wanted to take pics of the leafs anyone to post them to determine if people on here think that they should be replaced. I asked someone to look at the leaf springs to see if he thought that they needed to be replaced, but he thought that they were still fine.

    They are probably just fine. But post up some picks to double check.

    It's probably the overload leaf that's not in full contact with the other leafs. Yes this is normal.

    Here's mine for reference

    See how the bottom leaf is thicker than all the rest?
