2002 rclb sag

After towing my brothers camaro behind the truck I noticed the truck sagged a great bit. I was curious on what you guys would recommend to help compensate for the sag. I been researching and found sumo and timbren stopper things. Or should I lean to an air bag kit or helper springs?

Towing/Suspension Question

I have a 2020 Silverado 1500 Custom Crew cab with standard box. I plan to tow a new boat this summer that weighs, trailer included, just under 6,000lbs. Should I look to add any upgrades to my suspension to prevent wear and tear and/or sag while towing? The weight on the tongue during towing will be about 600lbs. Thanks in advance!

Looking at 5th wheels and wife found a Jayco that’s ~9500#. Anyone towing something this heavy with the 6.0, 6 speed, and 4.10 gears? How does it tow it? We camp here in Michigan and rarely go more than 2-4 hours from home.

Best brand air bags for towing with a leveled truck?

Still thinking about leveling my truck, and thinking about air bags to compensate for sag while towing my camper. I use a weight distribution hitch, but may need a little extra after I level it.
