It is apples to apples. I’m not guessing at the unloaded suspension position.  I had taken careful measurements of my rear suspension (wheel center to fender to eliminate tire effects) when it was unloaded, and I today put it in the same unloaded position by jacking the frame up to unload the rear suspension to the unloaded suspension measurement.  It doesn’t matter how the static suspension position is achieved. It just needs to be in the same position as the unloaded position to show the spring gaps for that suspension position. The truck could literally be upside down and it still would show it correctly (other than the small gravity pull on the springs themselves ever so slightly changing the spring shape).  

Ok, that's awesome!

I’ll take pictures again when I take the camper off in a few weeks. 

Take a few minutes and watch this video by JB reviews.  According to what I'm seeing you all were right.  That bottom overload spring on a 3500 does in fact look to be curved upwards or closer the the main spring pack.  Interesting.

 

It would have been nice had I attached the video...

You too could have those springs if you order your new fancy 2024 with the 10 speed and the big screen as a 3500.

Looks exactly like the JB reviews springs on that 3500 he was videoing.  They are arched more for sure!  Thanks for the pics.

My '24 2500 HD Duramax, Std. box, I ordered the "Max Trailering Pkg". Includes the 3500 HD rear spring pack with overloads, 12" 3500 Axle, Rancho shocks, 7 way in the box, 5th wheel frame  cross-member & bed plugs. Front HD Camper Torsion bars were $55.  Rides very smooth overall.

Added a rear "Roadmaster" brand  1.50" dia. anti-sway bar.  A must for a slide in camper or towing. Should be a GM option.

If you get a 3500 dually cab & chassis (box delete) it comes with one !
