If you only have a 1/2 ton truck probably air bags are about the easiest way togo or you could install timbrens

For heavier trucks like 3/4 tons and larger I prefer steel overload springs I go to a spring shop and have a set made and they are built to my needs. You gotta remember you only got a 1/2 ton truck so beefing up the rear springs doesn't give you more load carrying capacity because the rear axle and wheel bearings can't take it. With a 3/4 ton and a full floating rear axle your riding on 4 wheelbearings instead of two and its a heavier axle bigger tires etc.
