So I've been doing a bit of searching and couldn't find a conclusive answer to my question. I already purchased a set of OME CS061R with OME bushings which I haven't installed yet. Before I install them I'm wanting to know if they're enough to handle the added weight I've put on my X so far or should I invest in the HD leaf before the install? The rear has definitely gotten lower and softer since the install.

List of added parts:
Bilstein 5100's on all corners
ADO Heavy duty front springs
PRG rear shackles
Gobi Ranger Rack (80ish lbs)
Gobi rear ladder (25lbs -ish)
Hardcore Offroad front bumper w/ full grill guard (just a bit over 100lbs iirc)
Hardcore Offroad rear bumper w/ tire carrier, tow hitch and extra bracing (no clue what the weight is)
16x8 level 8 MK6 w/ BFG K02 285/75R16 as a spare (70 lbs)

The only thing that really matters for rear springs is the tire carrier on your list.

Maybe your springs are enough, maybe not, for me without a tire carrier they were too stiff off road, I needed adjustable shackles and now it’s bearable for fast off roading with cargo floating.

You could email Cory at Hardcore Offroad and ask him if they know the weight of the tire carrier. (My guess is that it is around 90-95lbs)
I did a quick search and found these for the stock weights: (I skimmed so it might not have the tire carrier comparison in there)

Then I found this, and it seems to answer your question:

Hope this helped.

I have a custom rear bumper and tire carrier w/33 BFG MTR and installed OME CS061Rs (non HD) on stock shackles a few months ago. feels great, huge improvement over stock. I considered adding the HD spring but am pretty hapy without it. Gave me a noticeable lift although i havent measured it.

From my experience, your leaves will be flat with that weight. Add the HD leaf and it'll be slightly better and ride like crap.

I have a MaxGear rear bumper with tire carrier and the MD OME rear leaf springs and have no issues. The ride actually feels a little better than with the oem bumper. I am not a fan of the OME leaf springs though. I feel like the MD are too stiff and do not provide much lift. The HD setup has to be brutal.
