id just do an AAL or shackle, then youll have a little rake empty and youll sit flat loaded up. if you had to air up your shocks everytime you throw a bike in the back.... pain in the back imo.

my truck has 1" rake, and with 2 bikes it sits about flat. but 3 bikes and i have a cali rake. lol

Just get a stiffer leaf pack. My stock leaf pack kept my truck level with two 450s and a toolbox.

Its on your door tag, in the door jam on the driverside should be springs - 1K or somthing along those lines.

the code should be on the sticker on the door ,i'm not sure what you gotta look for maybe some one will chime in about that,if i was you i wouldnt brother doing any upgrades to it since it's only on the weekends because the stiffer your leafs are the rougher your ride is gonna be

stock i had a 3deep leaf pack. i upgraded to a 5deep leaf pack and it helped out a ton! a suspension shop can build you new leaf packs exactly how you want them.
