What type of helper springs can I use to level the rear of my 1989 chevrolet Astro Van that has fiberglass leaf springs. VA Hospital installed a hitch to be used by a Hammar plate form for my power wheel chair. Thank You

You will have to put a set of air shocks on.

J.C. Whitney sells air and helper springs, but when you read the information on them, they say it won't work on fiberglass leaf for the 1989 chevrolet Astro van.
