Shock Question, Please

I've noticed my 2011 F-2fiddy seems to sag a bit when I hook a bumper pull trailer to her. I love the ride comfort of this truck and don't want to lift it but clearly need to strengthen up her saggy butt (without making her too stiff when not towing. Any suggestions you might have will certainly be much appreciated.

Also in a couple of weeks I'm going to pick up a 8.5x32 gooseneck and am assuming it will affect the sag even more.

airbags on rear will fix that. Keep smooth ride and air up bags to support extra weight when towing

Airbags were made JUST for this specific problem. You can increase your load capacity without affecting unloaded ride quality. You will LOVE them. So much more stable towing, less sag, and much more predictable over bumps compared to stiffer springs.
