    most K5s only had 2 leaf springs. 3 springs was the optional setup(can't say I've seen a factory 3 leaf on a K5).

    Mine had two plus one goofy looking half ass lift spring or something. I totally trashed those suckers at hollister right before we took them off. They bend really nice :D

    I think 3 leafs must of been in a plow package or something, unless it was different with K10s, because mine is a diesel and it only has 2 springs...but 4 shocks

    I saw one K5 on 3 leaves in Scottsdale AZ . Was bone stock Silverado on 32" BFG MT's . Was a little higher up front than mine was stock , but only like 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch higher . Wasn't an arched leave either , was flat like most K5's .

    Mine is a Heavy Duty package, has 3 leaves in the front, quad shocks, and Cold Climate package, which means no A/C... bastard who thought of a Cold Climate Package for Wisconsin should be hanged...
