G'day
Instead of replacing the springs, why think about 'air bellows' from a vaariety of suppliers including 'polyair' that way you can adjust the ride height as needed. I had the same problem as you in myTroopie and installed the airbellows and am more than happy with the effect.

I had an Old Man Emu kit put on my rodeo and cant praise it up enough - both on and off road handling improved 100% !The springs and shocks have now done 100,000 k's and still performing as good as the day they were fitted !
The OME kit might be a few dollars more than Ironman but in my opinion worth it !

Forget the air bags. There are more than enough criticial comments of the damage they can do to leaf sprung chassis on other threads on this forum.
Forget the 4x4 shop suspensions & save yourself a heap of money & go to a good spring maker.
Should cost not much more than $300 at a spring maker to fix it perfectly. Or at least as perfect as leaf springs can be set.
My son just paid $289 to have his leaves reset to his preffered ride height & have his tortion bars wound up to suit.
