Default emaxx too heavy for springs?

Hi - I just heped my bro' upgrade his emaxx control arms to chrome... and now, with all the upgrades - the roll cage, skid plates, bumpers, towers, etc - the truck looks super sweet, but seems to sag too much... dialing up the springs helps a bit, but the truck still seems to get "stuck" in a compressed position...
Any ideas on the best fix (stiffer springs?, etc...
Anybody experience the same issues with adding too much weight?
THANKS!
JR

Trinity blue springs and 60 wt oil should solve the weight sagging problem.
