Does anyone make HD rear leaf springs that retain stock ride height?

    My stock rear springs suck....i have 15k miles on my truck and the springs are sagging and I'm hitting bumpstops. I consistently carry approx 300 lbs in the bed.
    Does anyone make an aftermarket rear spring pack that retains stock ride height? Or close there to?

    I have sumosprings and they work really well, are relatively cheap, and installed in about 15min. I think it may have raised the rear about a half-inch initially, but has probably settled back down since then. Our camper has a tongue weight of about 250 pounds and the rear doesn’t really sag at all when towing. Highly recommend.

    Thanks. I already have a full airbag setup on the rear with an in-cab control to regulate psi. The problem is that too little psi and I'm still bottoming out. Too much and it rides like a board. There is no happy medium.

    I think some HD springs along with my airbag should work awesome
