i have an f250 and i want to beef up the springs so the bed does not sag as much. i tow a 6x12 enclosed(1200lbs) with about 1500-2000 lbs inside. on cleanups i pack the truck to the top, see rack on truck,if pic does not come out i will fix. i feel like i am throwin up a wheelie sometimes. what is the best way, not the most expensive way to beef this up. thanks

Timbrens will do the trick.

Find a spring shop. Have 1 leaf added to the main pack and 1 or 2 to the overload pack.

Sell the F-250 and get an f-350 with a higher GVWR.
