Snow plow package/Camper package

So what do these two packages really do? I have both and my truck looks level. I actually wish there rear had more clearance. Wondering what these packages do and how to get more clearance in the back. Any ideas?

It depends on your truck which I don't know what you have because you don't have it in your signiture.
Some trucks need more add ons like springs for plows. Fan's can be different. Campers have a rear sway bar plus more springing. Usually a F350 Lariet Diesel doesn't need much compared to a 2 wheel drive F250 6.2. Bed length matters too.

Camper Prep Package adds a rear anti-sway bar. Snow plow prep is slightly stiffer front coils and, I think, a heavier rated axle but not too sure on the last one.

I think you can put 350 blocks in the rear to get a little more rear height, right?

That's what I'm trying to gin out. It looks like it is lower in the back to me.

Install air bags...that'll fix the rear sag.

Try Firestone or whatever the name is...have worked great on my '01 Dodge for years now.

Also EpicCowlick has a video of an install of airbags that he did...took him all of 10 minutes or so according to the video timer....
