123 rear springs

I've read lots of threads on people lowering their cars and making handling improvements, but nowhere have I heard mention of upgrading the springs to handle more weight. I have a customer that is planning a trip to Baja and is going to be carrying a considerable amount of fuel with him. So far the idea's we've explored are:
1) some type of overload or air shocks
2) Having a heavier set of springs made
3) Possible swapping some springs from another body (126)
4) Fitment of self leveling system from a wagon (or 126)

The main issue is time, he is leaving in a few weeks, so we don't have much engineering time. Any ideas you may have are greatly appreciated.
