Super springs.com have a few helper options for your vehicle. The sumo springs work great for my Tundra

You can always replace the gas shocks with air shocks. All the El Caminos had them and they worked great! Hauled a 1500# slide in over 40,000 miles using only Gabriel air shocks. The mounts were stock and held up just fine.

If you have any specific questions, call super springs- super helpful! Even offered an exchange for harder compound if I wasn't happy with their primary product.

I've had air shocks before in an 83 Monte carlo and got about 6 months each out of two pairs- )always pays to get the lifetime warranty at Autozone)

HondaMan174- Did you order directly from super springs- when I went to their site, it didn't appear that anything could be ordered directly from them. I also saw something in the sumo line that repaces the original bump stop with a composite foam that helps support the springs-looked pretty effective as well.
Might be beneficail to call them and talk through the options.
Thanks,

Give them a call- they will sell direct to you. I went with the sumo spring (bump stop) one which has worked well for me. It took pretty much the entire tongue weight of my trailer as I had an issue with a bracket needing to be welded and drove to friends house without the WDH assist. My ass wasn't on the ground so that's a good thing.
