AAL vs Chevy drop's

hey guys so i have a question... i have a 2004 XLT and i have a sag in the back. in the rear of the truck i have a new camper shell, my lineman climbing gear and a steel(heavy) handmade tool box so it it noticably and annoyingly lower in back.i know guys put a AAL or chevy drop shakles(sp?) on the trucks so i was wondering what the pro and cons or each are. and what would be a better choice. thanks guys

AALs give a rougher ride since there are more leaves. the pay off is you can haul more without sagging.

shackles move you axle forward a little since they are longer then the stock ones. pay off here, you can flex more then stock.

both give more clearance and raise the rear.
