    I think it's an add-a-leaf, my K20 has a 3/4" thick add a leaf looks just like that my uncle added, but it also has a 1/2" thick bottom leaf for the HD springs from the factory

    The very bottom leafs are the factory overloads that came in all rear spring packs. If theres an add-a-leaf, it would be placed in the pack on top of the factory overload between the overload and the rest of the arched springs.

    Yup, that bottom one is just the factory overload. When I added my AAL it went between the main leaf and the second leaf. I had to cut it down to size per the directions. So maybe it does have an AAL but you can't see it cause it looks like the rest of the leafs. :crazy:

    You need to get a closer shot at one side leaf pack.

    That bottom flatter spring is the factory overload, like the others quoted.

    If there is another spring about the same thickness as the bottom OL leaf, and if its curved the same as the spring pack, then it is the AAL. But if all the leaves above the OL are the same thickness, then I've got to say the lift is only 4" as indicated by the lift blocks themselves.
