Ride-Rite Air Springs...Y or N?

Current setup: TRD OR long bed with ICON Stage One and ICON Add-A-Leaf. Lifted a couple inches, which is all I need.

This setup works great as a daily, or for the off-road camping I do. But when I add a rear rack and my 280-lb dirt bike, it's not enough.

So, the age-old question: Upgrade rear springs, or go with air? Is there a leaf spring setup that won't ruin the ride but also carry more weight? Any significant ride problems with air?

This has surely been asked before, but I haven't found any substantial info.
