Default New springs

At the moment the back end is starting to sag I already have gas adjust shocks in the back but I need new springs. I want to be able to haul a small load and maybe a small rake to it as well. I know a lot of people recommend the wagon cargo springs. What is the part number I should order if I go with those?

Also is this something I can do in my garage over the weekend provided I have to tools with a pair of jack stands? Thanks for the help.

Stiffen up your ride too? It would probably be a good time to do the bushings for the springs too wouldn't it.
