Default Air shocks for 07 with 6" lift?

Hello all. Looking for set of rear air shocks for my 07 screw. Has pro comp 6" lift. I pull an enclosed trailer every weekend (son race's jr. dragster ) and with cranking spring bars on distribution hitch super tight rear still sagging and lifting weight off steer tires too much for long hauls. Of course like everyone im wanting to go the cheapest route possibly. Trying to stay away from add a leaf, air bags, and spring helpers. Looking for air shocks or some Monroe versa loads (ones that look like coilovers ). Having trouble finding any that have the same specs as the pro comp mx6 shocks im running now. The mx6 shocks are... fully extended - 31" fully compressed - 20" = 11" travel. Any advice, thoughts, and ideas are greatly appreciated. Don't want to, but may have to fab up and weld on some extension mounts..... ugh

...
Have you tried heavier spring bars/WDH? That's the only sure way to get weight back on those front wheels.

The other stuff will also lift the rear and, in addition, stiffen the ride nicely, but does not move weight back to the front.

This sounds like an attempt to bandaid a bad situation. It the trailer appropriate to be pulling with this truck? Is your ball height correct? Is the WD hitch adequately sized?

Thought about heavier bars. Trailer is 7x16. Wd rated at 10,000 and tongue wt. 1,000. Ball height good. Just seems like my leaf packs are worn out. Sags about an inch without trailer.
