Another leaf spring and suspension thread

Hello. New here and have lots to learn.

New to the truck world as I have always had cars but finally broke down and bought a truck.

I have a 99 Ranger 2wd that suffers MAJOR rear end sag. About 2.5 inches lower than the front. My leafs look like this ~. On the door sticker it says SPRG CK. I am guessing thats a whimpy spring set up. I am wondering if switching from the 3 pack leaf spring that i have to the 4 pack, will level my truck out. Or even it if makes it a bit higher out back is fine too, as i will usually have tools of some sort in the box.

If I can switch to a 4 pack, can i get leafs from any 99 newer Ranger whether it be 4wd or 2wd?

The whole truck as a whole sits lower on the driver side (Ive read why). When I put new leafs in the back will I need to change anything in the front to level the front out (from side to side)? I dont have the torsion bar set up for adjustment

TIA

brand new leafs,add a leaf,or expo leafs which has been said above or 6400belltech shackles, or i think set of older chevy leafs would lift it which will require a little more work. NO BLOCKS though lol

Just bought a used set of 4 pack leafs from a 02 Mazda B3000 that have 20k miles on them. Let the fun begin!
