aal or shackles

soo i loaded up the 4wheeler and DAMN does my truck sag like crazy

i was going to buy some shackles but now im thinking a AAL instead to take some of the weight.

what do ya'll think. i would rather do shackle sos it's not such a rough ride without the 4wheeler in it.

not to thread jack, buuuut, with an aal it seems like your rear end would be so stiff that when you're unloaded and drive over a speedbump, there would be no give.
