What is the best way to fix sagging?

I got an 8 inch rough country lift and the sagging just bothers me every time I look at it. Rough country sent me the add a leaf but it only looks like it'll add about 3/4 of an inch. What the best way to fix this? The trailer is not lowered in the picture.

Air bags or a larger block would be my guess.

Rough country seems to send blocks that are to small. My 3" lift was the same way. Purchased bigger block

I'll look into a bigger block or bags but the block is pretty big

Im in the same boat brother!! I am considering the air lifter 5000 airbag kit. Just as you said the anti wrap block is pretty big already, and to stack a bigger block would require longer u-bolts. And to get leaf springs well thats a lot of coin!!! Even the trac blocks are only 8" blocks and are expensive!!

How much do the airbags cost and will that for sure work? I'm thinking about new leaf springs because I don't like how the leaf springs look themselves not a arch down up down with spacers. Depending on if the add a leaf helps which I'm doing tomorrow

Looks pretty even there! Im running 40's on 22's on mine, but I have a 2" lower coil spacer up front. Add-a-leaf will most likely still leave me sagging. guess Im gonna have to do the air lifter, considering a 3" block and longer u bolts.
