Broken Leaf?

Not sure what's wrong with it but it makes an ungodly amount of squeeking when going down basic roads (let alone dirt or gravel roads)

Bottom leaf

Rear, it appears straight


Front, bent out



Should I take it apart and beat it back? Or is this normal (if so... my other leaf[s] doesnt look like that)

Looks like the back is kicked out to the left as well. it should be fine, you could always line it up with the others if it bothers you.

'ungodly amount of squeeking '...

I'd say your leaf spring bushings or your shackle bushings.

Those overload springs and bottom leaf look completely normal.
