Arrow Rear Leaf Spring. Another thing broke!

So I was having my new muffler welded on the other day - it was on the lift and I noticed the Right side leaf spring has a couple leafs broken (on the front of the spring perch.
I don't really want to lift the truck, but I would like some better(cheap) springs. A local spring shop quoted me $280 to fix that side. I've seen springs online for about $300 for both . . . but they are lift springs.
Any ideas on aftermarket springs for no lift.
I was thinking maybe trying the Pro comp rear leafs that say 4-6 inch lift, and taking out the blocks. I guess then I would have to buy like a 2 inch spring on front. That might work.
What do you think would be the best way to do it?
Has anyone else had these back springs break?

I'm In Utah. I don't really want to lift the truck, but I think my F350 has a 4" or so block I could take out. Where you at, and how much? Do the pro comps ride better than stock, and do they haul as much weight?
