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.

I installed Timbrens based on the advice of another TDS member and could not be happier. My truck always has about 1500 pounds in the bed and used to squat. With the Timbrens the squat is gone and the ride is great. The Timbrens are only in play when the truck is loaded and require zero maintenance/adjustment. They take about a half hour to install and are relatively inexpensive. They don't seem to be too popular on this forum but I sure like them.
