Ysm, 5th rears are horrible.

Eaton Detroit Spring can sell you a new set.

I would get an old set from the yard for $ 20, and add a second main leaf to the set you have, and then new poly bushings. That is what my buddy did.

You can also flip the other leaves front to rear like this picture to get traction. mopar super stock spring.
