2007 1500 Crew Cab Shocks and/or Spring Helper

Good afternoon all, new member here with my first post.

My 2007 SLT Crew Cab is essentially stock, 72K miles. I use it the vast majority of the time as a daily driver, but have also rarely used it in the past to tow my Crownline 252EX, about 7500 pounds with trailer and gear. I noticed that the rear end sagged quite a lot when towing. I'm going to be towing much more starting in the fall, one-way trips as long as 1300 miles to SW Florida. Starting to look at mods that would be very helpful, especially for the longer trips. Am considering replacing the Monroe Sensa-Trac (#37207), which replaced OEM shocks at 60K miles, with Monroe Load Adjusting shocks (#58640) to help control sag. Alternatively, considering keeping 37207s and installing Super Springs. Any experience with either of these products and recommendations? Thanks!

I have a set of Monroe air bag shocks for when I bed pulled my wheeler full them to 120psi and they licked up the weight and after I was able to lower the pressure for normal driving.

Your best bet for a nice ride and load help is a Firestone air bag helper kit or the like the shocks Monroe makes I install at work and they keep it from bouncing a lot but they still sag. IMO air bags are the only way to effectively keep it level and loadable.

Oh and welcome to HTC

Look for a PM with a link.
Everyone here knows I'm a big fan of Timbren springs to increase load control.
