Hellwig load pro helper springs?

Any one have these or have any past experience with them?? Load Pro Series | Hellwig Products

I am going to be leveling my '12 next week, and need something to keep the back end level, when towing. It looks like these would probably do the trick, but looking for some feedback, as i have never used them or heard of anyone using them.

My other option is air bags/compressor, but seems like the helper spring is a much simpler setup, and that it may do the same job for half the price? Any input?

I am looking to do the same thing as darkshadowgray08. I havent picked a specific kind yet, but any advice on helper springs would be nice. I grew up around F350's so we never needed them, but now I need something with my 250. I have a 11 250 CC/SB.

I had a 40ft gooseneck empty and it squatted a little. We used it for a parade float and once the build was complete and it was loaded with people (including the truck). It was riding pretty low (like embarrassing low). I had to use 4X4 to turn becuase it wouldnt turn otherwise. I don't intend to haul a loaded 40 ft gooseneck, but I do intend to haul a 24 ft gooseneck with a 15k backhoe and maybe a 5th wheel camper in the future.

Not trying to rob the thread from darkshadowgray08, so please answer his questions first. I just didnt want to create another thread asking the same thing.

Thanks

Installed and add a leaf last week, picked up about an inch of lift and it rides sooooooo much better and a good bit firmer. I reused my oem u bolts and shocks and everything seems to be great. I will be towing at the end of the month, so I can see how they perform then. 2011 / 2012 Ford F250 Super Duty short add a leaf
