Default Broken Leaf spring

I found a broken leaf spring on the front left of the 40 today. It is the top spring of the pack.

Do I simply replace the top spring or replace the whole front set on the driver side?

Oh the spring pack is out of Says Standard or Stanley or something like that?

Advice por favor.....

unless you're looking to swap out all 4 corners, I'd look to find a replacement leaf or AAL to get you back in business.

take the broken on out and place it next to another! If it has the same arc and length, then your good! Of coarse you will have to clamp it together!!

The top leaf is usually the one with the eyelets? Denver spring can prolly repair the pack.
