Try getting some AAL's.. You can also trying getting your leaf spring re-arched.
 






What kind of tongue weight do you end up with, with your setups?
 






2000 xlt my boat is less than 500 lbs toungue ---trailer is at 500 lbs

what are AAL'S?
 






Add a leaf..
 






So like...has anyone done much to correct this ?

After towing my Camaro from Cali to PA, my rear sits lower too. I was thinking of jacking the body up and letting the rear suspension hang and loosing up the rear shackles and doing it that way...or should I just look for 4x4 rear springs ? Are they the same length ? Rate ?

Thanks.
