Default Front Spring Sag correct with Shocks

Front springs on my 94 SS are sagging just slightly, car body has 218K miles. I have to replace my shocks also and was wondering if I could correct the sag with just installing Gabriel Load Carrier shocks? They claim it will put your car back to stock height in the event of Sag.

A shocks job is not to hold up the weight of the car, that's the springs job.

Yes I know that, but these Shocks have load bearing Springs on them capable of carrying additional 500 lbs of car weight. Was just wondering if anyone had used these before?

Quote from there Website.

"The constant-rate front coil springs can help improve stability and restore or maintain ride height"

Strictly a band-aid. A good set of shocks just might solve your problem. Do yourself a favor,and stay out of AutoZone. The person giving you advice probably knows even less about your car,than you do. Find,and download Qalo'SS handbook. All kinds of helpful info. http://www.grail-ss.com/TechDocuments.htm scroll down to the handbook.
