Need Leaf Spring Advice

Noticed today that my taco's stock leafs are pretty saggy. I'm past warranty and I sure as hell don't want to pay the dealership for the TSB.

I'm looking to get a good pair of aftermarket leafs that don't add much lift.

Need recommendations for a good leaf set that gives a smooth ride without weight in the back for daily use, but can still handle occasional off-road and hauling and do not squeak.

I have a DC 4x4 and plan on installing billy HD's with my new leafs.

Help is appreciated

I had the same issue and replaced the rears with the Dakars. Made a huge difference and the ride improved alot. They can take tones of weight and flex well.

All leafs are going to get squeaky eventually, doesnt really matter who made them- theres some mods you can do to fix it though
