Hey Mr. KC,
I've read this thread from end to end, and one REALLY good alternative is missing. This is another one of them having been-there, and done-that kind of things.
Ms. American 3.14159 had the same problem with the rear end sagging just slightly.
She was taken to a place in Houston called "Heitman's", and they "re-arched" the leaf springs.
They had a guy who was about the size of "Batista", the pro wrestler, and he put the car on a lift, dropped the rear axle off of the spring, removed the springs from the shackles, took the springs apart, and placed each leaf of each spring on an anvil, and whacked it with a wedge faced sledge hammer.
On the table on which this is being done is a group of lines that is the stock "bend" for any given spring. He would match the curve by whacking the spring just right. He was GOOD at what he did. When he had finished whacking on all the springs, he reassembled them with new stuff between the leaves, and reinstalled them, and the 3.4 sits stock in the front, and about a half inch higher than stock in the back.
And I'm sure that I didn't pay what a new set of springs would cost for re-arching the springs. And they are still holding the rear end up almost 20 trouble free years later.
It would take some searching to find a place that does this probably.
Anyway, hope you are well.
