Default 1999 rear spring helper

Even with a moderate load, the rear sags so much.

What is the best way to boost the rear springs???

Well, I use Gabriel Hi-Jacker shock absorbers to raise the rear of my 1971 VW. I just add air to raise the rear to where I like it.

Might want to rebuild your rear leaf springs... could even add a leaf... but new bushings would not hurt. Heck, if still original, they're only 22 years old.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.
