Default lift leaf springs?

my stock leaf springs were saging when i bought my truck so iv done a 2in lift shackle and a rough country aal and the back is still sitting lower that the front with the 2.5 in rough country lift its a 2002 zr2 does anybody know if someone makes a 1" or 2" higher leaf spring preferably something stiffer so they wont sag again


is there a difference between a s10 zr2 leaf pack and blazer zr2 pack

also iv heard older 1/2 ton chevy rear springs fit right in anyone tried this and if so would they sit higher

thanks

what i did was go and get a pack of springs from a blazer with the "z85" option then made a bastard pack by adding my old longest leaf to the yard packs...added an inch or so and a little stiffer ride.
as far as two door options i am not sure.
