I just hung some relatively long mud flaps on my 2014 F-150 with 35,000 miles on it. That is when I noticed the drivers side rear part of the truck body is lower to the ground by about an inch and a half to two inches (depending on how you measure it). The leaf spring is not broken. Before I replace the springs on the rear axle does anyone know of other possible problems to check for?

It's impossible to really see hidden cracks to a leaf spring unless you remove it. They can also wear and sag over time, although yours is a 2014 that seems premature. Don't forget the gas tank is on the driver's side, that's potentially 175 lbs of added weight the passenger side doesn't have. The torsion bars on the front end can adjust tilt of truck, raise right front and you'll lower left rear, but that's only treating the symptom and not the cause. I'd either look into replacing the left rear leaf springs or get some helper springs back there.
