    My front springs on my stock Jimmy are flat there is no arch in them at all. Is that how they are supposed to be? I always though it sat lower than other k5s I have seen around here.

    Front stock springs on K5's all have a negative arch, so they look like /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    No arch? It should sit higher then. The stock springs have a negative arch to them (arch upwards).

    2 or 3 leafs? My 3 leafs sit pretty flat, almost no arch to them. 2 leafs seem to be arched quite a bit more.
