Default Leaf springs failing - Need advice

So as expected my leaf springs are starting to flatten after almost a year and are going to need replacing soon. I tried searching but really didn't come up with anything definitive so I started my own thread.
I want to replace the rear leafs along with shocks. What do you guys recommend for replacements that won't make it ride like a tank?
I saw somewhere on here about using shocks from a 70's ford pinto or something similar? Thanks for the help

for the springs, I would get the HD 4 leaf type, from my experience, their spring rate is slightly softer. as far as the shocks...I have heard the same thing.....but I haven't replaced mine....however I put new ones on my nephews cart that he used OFF ROAD, so he wanted something a bit stiffer and carries a heavy load at times, so went with Monroe gas filled, not regular shock.

Ok thanks that helps. The problem has escalated since I changed over to 48V. They must be taking more of a load with the faster take-offs.
