365SAQ 7000lb axle and spring question

To those of you out there with the 7000lb axles... how many leafs are in your leaf pack? I was under mine this weekend and was curious as I have 6 and they look a little flat.





Anybody have any input on these and how they look?

Mine look just like yours does. They are still curved up on the ends as my 6ks had no upward deflection at all. The first ones you see here are with the slides out in my driveway, which puts more weight on that side due to all of the slides being out.

Thanks, that makes me feel better.
Funny how I never think of these little things until we are packing up to drag it a few hundred miles down the road

Just a word of caution, looks like your entire spring shackle/holders are in desperate need of lubrication. Would strongly suggest using "wet" bolts in all the spring pivots and the walking beam. (7) each side.
