leaf springs warped leaf springs warped leaf springs warped

The leaf springs suck. They are warped like the shape of a W over the axle, it seems like the axle moves down/ backwards when accelerating then goes back as you reach a consistent speed. You can also see the gear shifter move back and forth as you accelerate and slow down. You can also see where the drive shaft has too much play, about 2-3 inches. The highest point of the springs is where it sits on the axle. Springs on my 94 pickup are U shaped along with my brothers 08 Tacoma and my girlfriends 2017. I have also noticed this same problem on every Tacoma like mine that I have looked at 5-6 with the same W shaped springs.
