Question about AAL Stiffness

Wasn't sure if I should ask this question in the tow/hauling section or here.

I recently added the OME 614 w/ CB +3 to my 2014 CM. When I hook up my 3400lb camper, the rear sits lower than the front leaving me nose high.

I was thinking about adding an Add a Leaf to the rear to fix the issue but was told that the AAL would stiffen the truck up when driven without the camper and that I wouldn't like it.

Anyone have any feed back on the AAL on a daily driver? Or anyone have any other options I would want to consider?

I have OME 614 with aal in the rear, The ride is firm, but not harsh. It is nothing like what I was expecting from all the horrible things I read on aal. I was originally planning to replace it with Dakar spring pack if the ride was too harsh, but I didn't bother. By the way, two of my children are very prone to get car sick and they had absolutely no problem with the ride.

Have you looked into a weight distribution hitch?

I have not looked into one yet. I was thinking that since my truck was now level, that increasing the rake with an AAL would be the route to go. I could look into the weight distribution hitch as well.
