got this 50T used pack a while a go (obviously the pack below of pic ;) ), and i noticed there's a rectangular sheet metal shim between each leaf (at the center) ...... so i wonder is it normal setup or is it something that the previous owner added to the leaf pack?? i have been looking in some build threads but can't find out about it so far, can some one plz help

Those are used to silence spring squeak. I don't know however if they were added or came with the pack originally.

They came with the springs. The idea was to keep the leaf from rubbing on eachother generating friction and heat/added wear. who knows if it actually works or not, mine got pretty destroyed so I left them out. broke springs with and without them.
