    i recently put 350lbs in the back of the truck and the back of the truck dropped 4 inches and was lower than the front if i replaced my shocks with a stiffer set like a set out of a 2500 or 3500 would this help the sagging
    i dont even want to see the truck with the wheeler in the bed and a couple deer and 3 deer stands

    Shocks will not change your ride height, they merely dampen the control of spring rate oscillation.

    If your loads are seasonal or by inconsistant needs, and you don't want a perminate lift from installing after market springs or add-a-leaf set, you may want to look into air bags that you can control from the cab.

    Yeah get an add-a-leaf or some blocks. Preferably the add-a-leafs for hauling.

    get an over load spring for your leaf springs, or air ride, all those will stop it.
