Rear end sag, airbags or ???

So I just towed my new setup for the first time this weekend and I'm thinking I could use a little rear end help. I don't want the rear end to raise when not towing as I don't have level and don't want any more rake. Are there rear helper springs that don't raise the rear or are air bags the best option? What do you guys run with a heavy load?

I love my airbags. Truck sits level with the 5er and rides lots better than being on the overload leaf.
