    put some ballast in the back of the bed up against the tailgate. 1000lbs helps take the strain off the front end.

    timberens, firestone air over shocks but like burkarts said, ballast works best

    I don't think I want to add any more weight to the rear. I already have bags in the rear to keep me off the helpers. I will look into the air over shocks , any recomendations where to get them?

    My buddy runs a fleet of plow trucks and all run airbags. He swears by them. I've helped him out when i've been slow or caught up. Gives quite a stiff ride but are great for leveling out a truck, not to mention you can customize on the go the pressue in both front and rear.
