planohog - For you personally, are you considering a lift to help offset the (rear) sagging you've seen with a cap and full load? Or have I misunderstood your intent?
Both OME and the CO like Donahoe have solutions that provide around 2" of lift if you want to play it safe. You could install the OME springs without the top plate spacer, and get 2-2.5", and of course the CO options like All Pro, SAW and Donahoe all have adjustable settings, but are typically in the 2-2.5" range.
So if you want to lift, but are concerned about some of the things you outlined, you can reduce those concerns by taking a more conservative lift approach.
