Add-a-Leaf or Bilsteins????

I have a 2006 dcsb with toytec coilovers in the front and an add-a-leaf in the rear. it is at a 3 inch leveled height right now but i want to lower the back end so the truck sits higher in the front than the back. What would my best options be? do i pull out the aal and put in bilsteins set at 2 inches or can i put in the bilsteins and keep the aal. i dont want my payload to go down but i also want it to ride smoother. im kind of counfused :/. thanks for any responses!

The rear 5100s do not provide lift.

If you take out the add a leaf, the rear will sit 1.5" to 2" lower than it does now, depending on the side of the add a leaf.
