springs or spacers

With my D90 rather loaded, the rear sits about an inch or so low and if I load it any more, it sometimes rubs. I have the 751/764 combo going, run 255/85/16's and have a rear cargo drawer that is fairly well stocked.

Should I get a HD spring for the rear to help with the load (762's? 781's?) or use the softer 764's and add spacers? Whatcha think?

If you're loading the truck that much, I would fit new springs, by overloading the springs you have, they will continue to sag even more over time and those spacers that would be there will eventually not create any more lift....
Fit new springs and then you can forget about it
What tree?
