Rear leafs are flat

I have a 90 xj that is currently stock and I want to do the s-10 bastard lift. I was looking at my rear leafs and they are flat. I was wondering if I can still do it if my xj leafs are flat. I thought leafs were supposed to have a curve in them.

Most stock XJ leaf packs are either flat or even a bit recurved. You can still do a bastard pack, they will get an arch back to them afterwards.

To get the most lift they should be off a 4wd but you can use 2wd springs too.
