Possibly it depends on whether you have single leaf springs or double leaf springs?

Can you still see part number on the leaf springs or it's corroded off? They might be uprated leaf springs to carry extra weight, there are few types of them.

Great read, and advice.
Just posting a reply to this thread as I will hopefully require the information in the future.

Kind regards
