This picture was taken with factory sagging leaf springs in the rear and the front:

This picture was taken with replacement 5 leaf 1inch drop leaf springs and 620 one inch drop coils:

The car sits virtually identically in height. The only difference is instead of saggy work out springs giving me the desired height, I get the stance I wanted and the benefits of new suspension components.

Your new leafs are designed to lower the factory stance so they are bent differently than the old ones you removed. They are prob heavier duty IMO which is why they are not arced as much.

I used drop leafs that alter the eye hole position to accomplish the drop...but I also did not directly compare the old with the new to check for arc.
