Leaf Spring Sag

In 1998 I bought a set of new springs from the local spring shop. They started out as 4 leaf, but to fit a little better I changed them to 3 leaf. The car was originally a mono leaf. It's been on the road about 3 years with a just over 10,000 miles. It sat good until the begining of the summer, when they started to saging with the right about 1/2" lower than the left. Also the right spring seems to be slightly softer than the left. The entire suspension was tightened with the car on the ground using new rubber bushings. I don't crank on it a lot, so I really don't think that's be too much of a factor. I'm thinking about replacing them with another new set, but can't believe they'd be sagging with that few miles on them. Can that be right?? Thanks Kevin
