Just an update, the other day I brought it into the shop to grease it up (turns out everything is sealed) and when it was up on the rack I noticed it had a busted leaf spring, and both sides were bent. So I took the springs out, and brought them to a place by me (rnhspring.com) and they replaced the broken leaf, re-arced the springs, and added a new leaf to each side. The back of my truck now sits up 3" higher than it did before. I'll get some new pictures of it tomorrow.

I've added a leaf to everyone of my vans to help with carrying extra weight, great idea...

I forgot to take a picture of the broken leaf spring when I got it out, so these pictures will have to do. Forgot to mention that even though I bought the truck as is, Circle Dodge agreed to pay 1/2 to get the springs fixed.

Here's some pictures of the truck with the new leaf springs. Forgot to mention that the red lines on the Sport badge were faded, so I touched them up with some model paint. I think it came out pretty good.
