What rear springs for little to no lift

Not wanting extra height, maybe just slightly more heavy duty springs in rear. Would like to avoid sag primarily.

Can anyone suggest something that can help me out?

Thank you.

Lots of options are well documented on this site. OME has a stiffer spring close to stock height. Best budget option is to pick up a used set from a different vehicle. Rear springs from a 5th gen 4runner drop right in. I have a set of front springs from a Jeep JK in the rear of my 3rd gen. I think they are slightly taller than stock but a good balance of weight capacity and ride quality for my needs.

You could get a set of the slightly taller 99 model rear springs. Or for a more budget choice the moog equivalent. Should be able to find part numbers here pretty easily.

The ome 2906 will poke the rear up quite a bit if the front is staying as it is now.

I recently got the AC Delco equivalent of the 99 talls, supposed to hold up better than the Moog version. I drive my rig pretty lightly but so far zero sag after about 6 months.

OEM 5th gen springs would be your best bet. 1"-2" of lift (depending on your current sag) and noticeably stiffer. Also cheap!

They are slightly bigger in diameter and will be a touch loose in the spring seats at full droop, but will work just fine.

OEM or aftermarket "99 Tall" springs will also work, but won't handle extra weight well - which may or may not work for you.

You could get OEM 99 rear springs + airbags and adjust them in accordance to your load at the time

That's a good idea if you are going to have a highly variable load (regularly towing, for example).

Air bags will likely be the best idea for you. Easy to tune and no ride quality change.

I'm running the 5th Gen springs on the Rear of my 3rd Gen. They work great, and I was definitely maxing flex this weekend with no issues!

They are fine when flexing, just loose at max droop (jumping or putting on a lift). I run 10mm trim packers with mine for a touch of extra lift and to keep them snug at full droop.
