1. To make your truck front end rise so much means that your springs are out of adjustment with your loaded trailer.
2. If both the back end of your truck and the front end of the trailer are dipping down when hooked up for camping, then your hitch head is too low.
refer to your hitch installation instructions.
- when hooked up, measure trailer height front and rear. then unhook trailer and raise/lower hitch head to level trailer.
- check your instructions on how to ensure your hitch head tilt is correct. When hooked up and ready to camp, your spring bars should be parallel to the TT tongue with enough tension to return your truck to near level (as recommended by your truck manual).
I'm sure you know this, but you are probably towing the max your truck can take. Neither airbags nor add-a-leaf springs in the back will change your tow capacity, they will just help level your truck if needed.
