Spring assist opinions

I'm going to be towing a 5,000 lb wet toyhauler from vegas to zion national park this weekend. I'm worried about rear sag and don't have the funds or time to pick up a set of airbags. I was looking into the spring assist for the leafs from autozone. Anyone use these? What's your thoughts?

Those make a big difference from stock for towing. I installed air bags before the TSB springs and not sure I would have spent the money on the air bags although with them, they do level the truck hauling my boat.....not that it helps you with your original question. I don't think those helpers will do much but for $30, probably worth a try.

You might consider supersprings. Here's a recent install and review write up from a month or so ago.

Thanks for the link. But at $350+ I might as well buy airbags.
