I just jacked it up, and noticed the leafs are all separating, with a gap of about 1/8 inch or more between each one.
Is there supposed to be a bracket or retainer to hold them together?
As long as the leaves don't get misaligned within the pack (which is why the clips exist,) it's not a problem. I've seen the leaves separate on a number of vehicles when jacking by the chassis, no problem.
Worst case? I've had to tap the leaves back in line with the main and find clips to apply, because they were missing.
