Thats what I did when I had my 88 southwind, (added a leaf) worked fine. O yes and had the springs recurved, A spring shop can do that for you.

How much $$ was adding a leaf? I need to come up 4-6" in the rear, will that do the job?

Not sure about todays prices: I had this done about ten years ago:

To add a leaf on each and recurve the springs was $120 Did the job and the extra leaf didn't affect the ride, befor that the back in was always dragging.
This should raise the rear a good 6 inches.
