Add-A-Leaf ?'s

I've got a couple of issues with my truck's rear suspension(F350, 4wd). The previous owner had a shackle relocation kit installed on the front suspension, don't know the exact amount of lift that gained, but the *** end of the truck needs some help. I carry about 6-800 lbs of tools in the bed at all times and the topper. I like a little "rake" to my trucks so if I lift the front I also lift the rear. The other issue I have is the drivers side sits an inch lower than the passenger side based on measurement to top of wheel well from garage floor.

I know the add a leafs will lift the truck, but will the drivers side be helped out the extra amount to help bring both sides to close to the same height? I know the best thing is probably new leaf packs but am trying to be cheap!

Air bags.

I have the same tool and canopy situation as you, and my rear was sagging pretty good.
I added air bags to bring it up and was amazed at how much it actually increased the ride quality

Thanks Joel, I've been wanting to put on bags for a while. Sounds like the best option. I see that there are bags available for the front axle as well. Do you think they would help ride quality on the front end too?

That's something I've been wondering myself.
Seems that no one uses them on the front, so it's hard to get a real answer.

If you decide to try it, let me know

I test drove an F350 with them a cpl yrs ago. It was firm and not as harsh. Of course it was a limited drive. AirLift has them and a $50 rebate through June. Buy them from Amazon for 260-50=210.00. May be worth a try.
