I was gonna mention you're saggy ass but I tought it would be gay!

Helper springs have helped mine so far. They've been on there about 8 mos. Still hunting for a set of springs though. If you can swing it just buy them. I have a daughter in college so I can't afford to pay attention!

Haha yea could be construed as a little gay :) haha. Ok well I might as well just find some 5" lift springs huh. Or maybe some 4" and get some shackles. Thanks for letting me know my ass is saggy :lol:

here is some info but for jeeps.

" OME Add-a-Leafs
Add-a-leafs have a poor reputation and it's partly deserved. A really cheap path to a quick lift is to insert an AAL into an existing stock spring pack. This works at first, but is doomed to fail quickly. That single spring has got to provide all the vehicle lift plus it has to counter the forces of the tired stock springs. No way. Sooner or later the lift will be gone, and the money wasted.
My original spring packs, OME #JC1B, were too low and too soft when the XJ was fully loaded. The stiffer, taller #JC2A leaf pack could be what I really need, but instead of buying an entire new leaf pack, RRO suggested adding either an OME add-a-leaf, or a lift block, or both. The OME JCXL is an AAL designed to compliment my existing pack, not fight it. Von and I knew that the JCXL would add extra spring rate... about 20% more. That extra resistance to droop would provide part of my solution.
Ultimate Lift Blocks"
