Good springs, air bags, short block, add a leaf if it really sags, but new springs would be a better idea.

Pick one.

I tried adding new shocks with coil helpers on them. I needed new shocks anyway and I also needed the extra support for towing. They work awesome as shocks and kick butt for towing but do absolutely nothing for the squat.... Just as an FYI, this is on a '99 Tahoe.

New springs Or even some used springs...just look at a truck at a bone yard and make sure it sits at ride level. For future reference bad shocks will wear your springs out prematurely, that is probably why it sags right now!
