Default Need To Stiffen Rear Suspension...

As the title says, I want to stiffen the rear suspension on my '05 700... I have the adjustment set all the way up but it still isn't enough when I use my rack that slides into my 2 in. receiver...I had a decent size 8 pointer on it last year and the rear really sank pretty badly...I understand with that rack, the weight is probably back too far which makes the rear drop....I am thinking of a set of EPI's for the rear to help with the sagging...What do you guys think???? I have them on the front and was pretty impressed with what they did...

EPI front springs
2 in. custom rear receiver

See if the X2 springs will work (sizewise) on the regular Sportsman. They're rated for 400 lbs. and hold my 350 very well along with a passenger without a problem.
What can be said of this mystery we're in? I have only one answer to give,
If Jesus didn't die to be the Savior of my soul, truly, I do not want to live.
For what would living be without a meaning and a hope?
Precious little more than just some cruel cosmic joke.
It's like being all dressed up and there was never even anywhere to go...
