2000 Excursion spring and tire advice

I have a 2000 Excursion that I have owned for almost a year. It primarily sits in the garage and only comes out when it is nice. The previous owner has done some suspension mods but I am having trouble trying to figure it all out. The part # on the front springs are 3C34 AFA 3503. There is also a couple of little short springs under the main leaf that I am not sure about. Anybody have any input on them front springs? Truck doesnt ride to bad at all but the rear does sag easy with the weight of a small tailer on the hitch. I have searched multiple places and I come up empty handed on that part #. The rear springs are look to be factory but am not sure if the block is factory or has been added.

The wheels I like OK but the tires do rub slightly on the springs when I am at full lock in either direction. They are LT305/55R20 Load E Nitto Dura Grappler Highway tread tires. I would prefer something a little more narrow. I dont mind the height of the tires but a little to wide for my likings. I am sure they do not help my mileage any being that wide also. What would you all recommend for a tire size?

I may have to bite the bullet and and go with the "V" codes up front and the modified "B" in the rear. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

THe V's up front will leave you sitting right around where your at (in your signature pic). Thats what I'm running on my V10 which is a few 100 lbs lighter.

Also, those little springs appear to be some kind of lift
