Leaf spring sagging

Hi

Could anyone send me a picture off what leaf springs should look like unloaded have just left pick up into garage to get an overall check done as it has become very boat etc to be told buy mechanic that springs look ok and that the slight incline on one side is normal and that unless spring breaks it can’t wear ???

On the 2.5 engined models the springs start off with a bit of an arch, after a few years they do go flat. Not so much of a problem - as long as nothing is broken.

Yep, springs are pretty binary in terms of OK/not OK.
Shocks degrade and failing ones cause "wallowy"...

measurement of the gap between the top the wheel and the wheelarch is a good comparator, mine is about `130mm
