      OK, here is my situation. I have a bent leaf on my Mountaineer, and they are both pretty worn and saggy. With our house being flooded, and living out of our cargo trailer, I am towing it a lot more than I thought I would.

      I am looking for a new, off the shelf leaf pack to replace mine. I am not interested in piecing together used leaf springs. If it comes to it, I will, but that is not my first choice.

      I want to maintain factory ride height while increasing capacity and reducing sag. I know that this will mean a rougher ride, which I am perfectly fine with.

      Does anybody have any suggestions, or know what I need?

      My Mountaineer is a 302 V8, auto, BW4406 with 3.73s and 255/85R16 (33x10). Here is what I have been towing:

      Is there a better forum to ask this question?
