Default Leaf Spring Question

Im getting an add-a-leaf kit soon.
Are the 01's leaf spring riveted together or bolted together?

Bolted. The head of the center bolt is a plain round cylinder that engages a hole in the spring perch for axle alignment. It can sometimes be difficult to remove, especially with time and rust in the equation.

^^ He is dead on! I did an ad-a-leaf on my 93 XL, ended up replacing both leaf packs due to the main leaf being snapped in half
