    rear leafs shot?

    ok guys i was doing some measuring and noticed i have a rear lean and not a front lean

    the left rear is lower then the right rear by 1"

    also before when the front was lowered 2" and the rear lowed 3" the back sat lower by about 1"

    so i have come to the conclusion that my leafs are a little saggy, is there anyway to bring them back to stock, or once there bad are they bad, someone mentioned having them rearched, is this a good idea

    swap them from side to side and see if it levels out. if you want your springs fixed just get new ones because when rearching you always run the risk of them not being even when weight is applied (i have heard horror stories from people ruining good leafs becasue they got them dearched)

    it's the chevy lean. get used to it mark. ur gas tank and ur weight are both on the driver side. so it will lean to that side.

    on a side note, i have the same lean in my blazer and my gas tank is BEHIND the axel in the middle
