Default 2/4.5 drop

I have a 2/4.5 drop on my 2003 quad cab... Damn thing bottoms out all the time.
I have belltech nitro 2 drop shock all around, the rear feels so soft. Is there any stiffer shocks out there?
Was planning on putting helper bags on , but fig that will just make it super stiff and ride like poo

shocks absorbe the road "shocks". springs carry the load. Take the shocks off and test drive for a quick test to see if its a shock length problem.
