So I was adjusting the leaf spring shackles on my 06 silverado 1500 2wd crew cab on Saturday when I noticed I believe the center leaf spring(total of 3 leafs)was cracked in 2 with a considerable chunk missing.

I have a couple of questions, the first one being is does anyone know of a good leaf spring manufacturer/supplier? I’m looking for hopefully American made. I’ve only had these Dorman replacements about 3 1/2 years & based on the fact I rarely ever haul anything, I feel they should of lasted much longer.

My second question is, how dangerous is this to drive around on, it is the center spring.

Thanks in advance guys.
