Default heavier springs

I'm wondering if anyone knows if heavier rear springs are available for fourth gen 1500s. I'm wanting to bump up hauling capacity a bit. Looked at timbren load levelers and firestorm bags but just curious if anyone makes springs

Yes, I've seen them, but can't remember exactly where. Both heavier rate and progressive coils. Was considering the progressives myself. I'm sure a little google-fu will turn them up for you.

I installed the Tuff Truck TTC-1223V springs along with Bilstein 5100 shocks on my 2011 RAm 1500 and I felt the ride was actually a bit better than stock mainly due to the new shocks.

Can anyone tell me if these springs can be run with rear spacers?

You may not need the spacer since you do get a bit of a lift from the TTC-1223V springs.
