Default 1 ton springs on a 2500?

I bought my '99 Ram 2500 quad cab short bed diesel 4x4 about a year ago for work and one of the first things I noticed were Rassini leaf springs on the back. I suspected they were aftermarket. The information in the door says the GVW is 8800, and although thats just the manufacturer being cautious, in my experience to reach that number you load the unmodified truck up to where it sits about level.

I finally loaded it up with broken cement the other day to where it sat almost level and weighed it at the dump scales, which said 11,000 even. Plus or minus 50lbs. Had I known it was that much I wouldn't have thrown that much in, but it didnt sag so I kept loading.

Are these aftermarket 1 ton springs? Anybody have a picture of stock 2500 second gen springs? Thanks
