Need suggestions for Suspension

Hey Everyone,

I have a 6.4L 2008 F250 Super Cab with 8' Bed that I currently have 26,000 miles on. I usually only use the truck for towing a 14' work trailer that carries approximately 3,000lbs inside.

Since the trailer is hooked to the truck 24/7, the rear is beginning to have a slight sag. I want to accomplish two things.

1.) Eliminate the sag in the rear from towing the trailer. 95% of miles on the truck are towing the trailer. I have heard that helper springs in the rear would stop the sag?

2.) While eliminating the sag, I want to raise the truck slightly (2-3") overall.

Can someone point me to some suspension companies/components that will allow me to raise the truck without going to a huge lift but also allowing me to eliminate any sag in the rear? I will be keeping my stock 18" Super Duty wheels but most likely adding 295/70/18 tires similar to the Nitto Terra Grapplers.

I have tried to search through these threads and have seen guys either wanting to lift OR stop the sag, not both.

Appreciate ANY and ALL advice!!!
