Additional springs to carry the load better

I have a 2000 F350 DRW. I only have the single set of springs. The truck is not new to me, but that seems to be the setup for that year. I have a buddy with a 2002 and his truck has an addition set of springs on top of his main springs. Has anybody added these? I want more load carrying capacity. When I loaded a gooseneck, for the first time today, those springs sure straightened out more than I wanted them to. I guess I could get a set of bolt on helpers. But thought I could add the springs on top and the stops to have the same ride empty, but more weight carrying capacity. Other ideas? Thanks.

Guys, thanks for all the input. I got the airbags, Firestone. I got them from Summit Racing--cheapest price around. They were $230 plus tax. I picked them up in McDonough, Ga. Tomorrow I'll try them out. Took little over an hour to install. As usual the second one went a lot faster. I have them at 40 psi for starters. Guess I need to change my signature now.
