Question Bilstein's?? Will they help?

Can anyone tell me if these shocks will help in pulling a light weight travel trailer? Will they help in rearend sag? If so, what type? Thinking of going the air lift way, to increase stability, but hoping shocks will do the job just as well?
Cheers!!!

Shocks won't help rear end sag. Look at some airbags.

x2, Shocks absorb bumps so your suspension doesn't keep bouncing, they do not support weight. Air bags, an AAL or Timbrens would be something you might want to look into.

replace the weak ass stock leaves. you will have to raise the front if you don't like a massive rear to front rake. lol.

i swear my dakars raised it four inches and made payload better than a half ton.
