Looking for factory RV overload springs

I could use some help, I have been looking for the factory RV overload springs that bolt on top of the rear springs and the bumper brackets that bolt on the frame for them to rest on under a load. Is there anyone out there that knows where I could possibly try to find these, everywhere I have looked on the internet turns up an empty basket for these. Any help will be much appreciated. Also the truck is a 2007 F250 superduty FX4

I thought about it but with the gooseneck hitch in there isn't really much room, seems like the spring would be easier to do an cheaper

They make airbag kits made for fifth wheel setups. Do you not have any overload springs?

It has the factory setup which has 6 leaf springs with the 2 overloads underneath, I was just trying to find the factory RV setup for just in case instances because I haul a lot of equipment and hay on 30'+ deckover trailers

You can buy all of the parts from Ford or go to a junk yard and pull them from a wrecked truck. My truck came without the factory helper springs, and I added them after my air bags cracked and wore-out in less than 2 years. I think I spent ~$500 for all of the parts (new from Ford), including the frame contact brackets. I also installed 2 helper springs per side - one from a F250/F350, and one from a F350 DRW.
