Anyway, I agree. I was leaning toward removing the OL leaf until I saw that but now I don't feel so comfortable with it.

And I don't think there is no way there is enough torque on stock tires that SHOULD cause that unless dodge was using some really cheap spring steel. That is just my take on it, could be wrong.
There's a common denominator here, both of your trucks were used for towing, however little it may have been. Maybe it's towing + torque + cheap spring steel = wavy springs.
