Rear Helper Springs?

I just bought a leftover 2007 XLT EL 4X4 and love it so far. I was looking for some sort of air bag helper for there rear with no luck. I do not have air suspension which means I have coils in all 4 corners. Anyone have any idea's?

There are no kits out there for the expy. I ordered mine w/ the air ride and it is well worth it, some on here say you have a hard time using a weight dist hitch with the air suspension but i've yet to have a problem. I'd keep my eyes out for them soon as they have kits out for the new tahoe so the expy can't be far behind.

Rear Axle Weight Rating doesn't change a bit adding rubber blocks to the suspension. Truck won't sag. Still can be overloaded.

Rear axle weight can be changed. If he has the tires and susupension to handle it why not? Here in FL you can weight your vehicle to whatever you want as long as you have the tag/insurance/and registration. DOT looks at weight ratings of TIRES only. They do look at axle weight but I don't see you getting close to 19K lbs w/ a steer axle or single wheel application.
