Rear aal/support spring or air bags?

So I just towed my new setup for the first time this weekend and I'm thinking I could use a little rear end help. I don't want the rear end to raise when not towing as I don't have level and don't want any more rake. Are there rear helper springs that don't raise the rear or are air bags the best option? What do you guys run with a heavy load?

I think it depends on where they mount. My dads mount between the axle and frame, mine are on the side of the frame and mount to the springs. I did the ones on my dads truck (my truck came with them already) and it was pretty easy with the 5th wheel installed still.

I would say air bags are the way to go. I am in process of getting the in-cab control set up, that will be even better!
