Default Rear suspension question

The rear of my 1995 Dodge Explorer sits lower than the front. This is even with all the stuff we carry in the back storage area out. I was pricing an air bag systems and with installing at RV dealer the est. was around $1000.00. Can the rear leaf springs be redone and if so is this cheeper? Any sugestions would be great!

It's been a long time since I had it done but I have had rear leaf springs re-arched and an extra leaf added. You really need to price around because I found a huge difference in pricing. You also need to get a garage that speciallizes in suspension.

The last vehicle I had done was a 1988 Jeep Cherokee. I bought front coil springs but need them installed. I priced around and found one company would install the front springs, re-arch the rear springs and added an extra leaf. It was quite a while ago but it cost $350 to have it all done. It was pre-1992.

Sounds like re-arching the rear will be the best way to go. Thanks to all!!!
