Stiffer rear springs

My 3" Full Traction springs are starting to sag pretty bad especially with the family loaded up with camping gear and my popup. I was going to buy some Air Lift bags for the rear but the coils taper inside diameters so they won't work. I am now looking for different springs.

I like the height unloaded with my 3" FT so I don't want to really go down from there and I don't want to sink too much into more suspension parts at this time to accommodate a taller lift. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good set of springs that can handle the extra weight and not sag? I m not against still using the Air Lift bags while towing but I still need a spring that has a consistent inside diameter.

I have had OME 619 front 617 rear for over 35k tough use. They were great but now sag when loaded HEAVY. Flying across the navajo res and tucson city streets is brutal. Off road is fantastic. For stable ride, that is designed to soften when extended I am considering metalcloak. Both are reccomended for towing, loaded with camping gear.
