Rear Springs for NAS D110

My rear springs are shot. I don't want lift. I want standard height with a moderate load of camping gear. I do moderate offroading. These appear to be my choices:
- OEM springs (NRC6388 & NRC7000) - Recommended for Leveling system
- TD5 Springs (RKB101111)
- Old Man Emu Soft (OME752)
- Old Man Emu Heavy (OME755)

What do you guys think? Are any of these better than OEM for what I do?

John

if you do not want lift, then use LR OME...

I have 130" spec rear springs on my 110, that is, HD main springs , plus the "inner" small ones, this doesn't give much of a lift, maybe an inch or so, but when loaded up it doesn't sag much either, and gives a lovely rids off road.

I just put OME 755's on my truck and it adds about 2" of lift. But you don't want the lift so I guess I am saying don't go for the OME 755's.

I would buy OEM 130 springs or 110 HD springs--whatever they ship for trucks without the load leveler.

Won't the HD give the truck a lift? I am still going back and forth on what to do with mine. I thought I had to go HD for the winch on the front but I don't want a lift.

So many conflicting views.

I just want stock height, and a decent ride. I am planning on adding bilsteins.

The HD factory springs do give a bit of lift (When empty), about an inch or maybe 2 at the rear, nothing much, and once you load up, it sits back at "normal duty" height
