I had a leaf added to my 92 and it's been great. Raised it 2 1/2 inches. Cheap way to lift and still rides well enough. Hasn't sagged any in 3 years.

Just took it to an auto spring shop and they added the leaf. It's thicker than the stock leafs.

I've heard of using a spring from chevy S-10s as an add a leaf. This was done w/ the stock spring packs though, not sure if it would yield any results w/ the RC springs you have since it's already arched more than stock.
