    I would like to beef up the rear-end because I would like to get bigger tires. I have in hand 5100's for the front and would like to put bigger springs to stop it from sagging when I tow anything. I need help with tires size and spring set up it. If I get new springs will it bring the rear-end up so I can raise the 5100's up to 1.75 for allow for bigger tires. Help. Tell me what I need to buy for the rear -end???

    Sounds like an Add-a-leaf is the solution for you.

    Toytec and wheelers make good, inexpensive ones.
