Default Stiffening my lowered blazer?

My blazer is lowered a couple inches in the front and back, i beleive it is lowered by removing leafsprings because there 4 in the front and 5 in back

i recently got a job and finally have money to put into

With 4 people in it and stuff in the back it bottoms out very easily with just me its not bad or a passenger too.

Im planning a 350 swap next and and i like the lowered look and feel however with the extra weight i want to keep the lowered look but stiffen it up and make it nice an tight

How would i go about doing this? its a 2door 2wd
and input is appreciated thanks

Go with a stiffer shock or search for lowered leaf springs which are made for lowered vehicles and stiffen up the ride like you want without having to cut bump stops off and do a c-notch.
