throw a block in it, that will get your lift height back, but wont do anything for supporting sagging springs :)

X2. Rember a block will work lose and you can have spring wrap when wheeling hard.

Pick up a S-10 or Dakota pack at a junkyard and make a bastard pack using your main and the main from the JY springs http://www.lunghd.com/Tech_Articles/Suspension_Steering_Axles_and_Brakes/Budget_Lift.htm

What about adding a longer shackle. (assuming your kit didn't come with one) It will give you the .5" you are looking for and its not a block and will flex more.
