Re: crooked leaf spring?
After repositioning the leaf, torque all 4 u-bolts to 76 lb-ft. The center bolt does virtually nothing for leaf alignment compared to the u-bolts. This doesn't guarantee that the leaf will never shift again. However, it is a wake up call to check for a possible problem with the u-bolt torque.
