Helper Springs

What is the best helper spring set out there for my 1999 F250? I dont tow all that often, so i really have no true need for airbags, however when i tow my 7000lb camper, i would like some extra stability, and less sag. I have browsed a little, but not sure where to start. Whats the best for my money?
Thanks

Late 99 F250
Ext. Cab Short bed
DIY Intake
Smoked Corner & Cab Lights
20% tints all around

In the (Near?) Future
Muffler Delete
2-4" lift
33" tires

I would do airbags. this way you can control how much help you get. Plus if you ever get somthing bigger you already have them!

I pulled my 5er just fine till I put the tank in the bed. the extra 90 gal made the ride very bouncy and sagged my back end bad. There were airbags on the truck when I got so I pumped them up and what a difference it made. I now have the incab controler and can inflate/deflate them on the fly as needed. very nice to have. Bags are probably cheaper then springs unless you find someone that installed a lift or a junk yard part.

and some 250s already have the same springs as the 350 srw. what is the gvwr on the door sticker?

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
