Default Need A Rear Lift

My 03 edge has a slight squat in the rear. What would be the best way to lift the rear end up? Leaf Springs or Shocks?

Leaf springs shocks wont lift

Summit sells a AAL kit AAL = Add a leaf

If the back then is a lot higher crank the torsion bars on the front

Here are some on Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CIKAPA/...SIN=B000CIKAPA

Also have them on Summit. Yes they say they are to lower our chevy, but they lift our truck. 50-60 bucks.
