How many leafs

I have an '07 XTR 4x4 6.5 box, it has the tow package,tow mirrors,and 3.73gears, but I noticed it only has 2 leaf springs not including the helpers,so a total of 3. is this the norm, Some you see have 4. I don't see any options in the '07 broshure, unless you get the heavy payload package,which has the 8 lug wheels.
Can anyone explain?

I don't know if this really helps but just taking a quick glance it appears my 05' FX4 has 4 leafs if you include the overload spring. It has the tow package but not the heavy payload package.

I think I remember reading somewhere that 04-05 sit higher in the rear than 06-08 due to an extra leaf. Who cares how many leafs it has anyways, if there are less leafs but they have a higher spring rate then it won't matter anyway. FWIW my 06 has 3

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more
