4" Rear leaf Springs or Lift Blocks

I have a 2000 F-350. I do lots of towing..Lots. My question is this.
I have a 4" lift on it with the rear lift Blocks. I have been running this for years and have not had a problem. Well except for axle wrap. I was at the tire shop the other day and got to talking about axle wrap. He said that I was crazy for not having 4" leaf springs in the rear. Said that it would be safer and drive way better. Is this true? Will it make that much of a diffrence in the way it drives? Should I replace the lift blocks and put a full 4" leaf spring. Is worth the $600 since I have not had a problem with the blocks? Any info will be helpful. Thank you.

Quality springs can ride better..Icons and stop the axle wrap but won't carry the loads as well. if you need pricing let me know.

A 4" traction block if they make it in a 4" would be another option. That would take care of the axle wrap and keep the load capability.
