Leaf spring size for 2021 331RL with 6000 lb axles

My left side of my 2021 MHC 331RL is lower than the right by 1.5-2" I think it is the springs. The tires have rubbed on the bottom of the frame rail as well. I can't get camping world to call me back from service or the parts dept. I am not sure how to measure the eye to eye (A) length to confirm what size I need. I see 26", 25.25" and 24 7/8" on etrailer. I measure 26" loaded and about 25.5 lightly loaded. I have 6000lb Dexter axles, which I believe based on a keystone video has been upgraded to 3500lb leaf springs. Anyone know the correct A length or source to buy new springs? ( or other suggestions). I don't see anything cracks on the springs or anything wrong with the rest of the suspension so far. Thanks!

This is what Trekwood shows for the springs used for that axle that year. https://www.trekwood.com/products/13...g-5-Leaf-Rev-C
You should be able to order that spring from any number of suppliers.

Thanks Bob & Becky! Keystone upgraded to 3500 lb springs for the 6000lb axle and Trekwood has those listed when you start at the axle assembly. I am not seeing anyone else with a 26" 3500lb. Any suggestions?

I found Lippert springs for $106 each. Any opinion on Lippert vs Dexter? Or any compatibility issues? I have a Dexter Axle thanks!

The Dexter Axle service manual is in the files section. It has the specs for the 3500lb leaf springs.

Make sure your RV isn't loaded unevenly

Are all the hangers still attached to the frame for the springs to attach to. I experienced a similar situation and one of the wet bolts had broken loose.
