I would go with air bags before I put in helper springs. My dad had
extra helper springs in his 74 chevy 3/4 ton back in the day for when we
had the heavy camper on and it rode level, but man, the rest of the time
it was like riding a rock. But it was pretty much all that you could do
back then. Today, you have other options...
If you go with something like:
You hit a button and inflate for extra heavy loads, then call Tom Brady
in to deflate the bags for normal ride conditions.....They work real nice.
I'm not endorsing the above site, BTW, just that air bags is what I
would go with and not extra springs UNLESS you are going to have the
weight all (or most) of the time. Then you might as well get the
springs, but if bag it if just occasionally.....
