    I have been seeing some helper springs out there. I would light to increase my payload just a hair. I leveled it and now (which I expected) when towing/hauling it sits a little low.
    I was considering the leaf spring additions....any suggestions on which ones??
    I have a 1500 Sierra Z71 (2011)

    Thanks!!

    Best bet is probably air bags; with add a leaf type deals to make any real difference your gonna need to stiffen it up enough that you'll notice the rougher ride. Air bags will be there only when you need them.

    I had the air bags on my 2005 Toyota and 2008 Ram.
    Well worth the money and worked great.

    Give these a try. Work great when towing and you won't even know they're there when not. I'm pulling a 9k pound camper with my f150 without weight distribution bars
