You probably already know this, but adding/changing springs will not change the load capacity of your truck. Your brakes, engine, transmission, cooling, etc. dictate how much you can haul. That being said, if your truck is out of warranty and you cannot get the rear spring TSB, an add a leaf (AAL) is a great option. The Toytec 1.5" combined with a set of Bilsteins up front or an aftermarket set of coil-overs will make a nice difference, but still won't add to your load capacity.

it will add some load carrying comfort... with more than 500lbs. my truck bounces off the bumpstops over speed bumps...

IMO toyota way over estimated the load the truck can carry in the back... if i put 70% of the load capacity im bottomed out...so if adding a beefier leaf makes it so you dont bottom out so bad, in effect your increasing load capacity...
