    does any company make a full length add a leaf type spring that adds load capacity but doesn't increase the stock ride height?
    it seems like they all add 1.5 inch or so to the stock height - I don't want the rear end to 1) look jacked up or 2) to change the suspension / drivetrain angle.
    the alternative to an add a leaf is to replace the whole spring pack but that is costly - $500 or more versus an add a leaf that would be less than $100.

    Load capacity is not solely a function of the leaf pack you have. GVWR take braking ability, tire load ranges, frame construction and reinforcement, and a host of other elements into account.

    How much MORE are you looking to be able to load into your truck??

    well it seems like anytime I put a few hundred pounds or so the rear end squats down and the front end lifts up.
