    You already have overload springs and air bags don't go in the bed, they're helpers to the leaf pack. If you want to retain stock height, air bags are a good solution.

    air bags

    i have the firestone rite rides and love them. easy to install and adjust the air pressure and it will still ride like stock, when deflated to 5-10psi the ride is stock and the height is stock, you can add air to lift the rear and stiffen the ride. they are not for hard core offroading though. i used mine on the beaches of OBX and they were great

    and this guys has some for sale
