Default Rear end sag?!

Ok so I did a break job on my truck the other day, and I noticed that my leaf springs are flat, and no longer curved lol. So after seeing this. I came &looked to see if I could find any leaf springs for sale on the classified. I found some and pm'ed the guy, but was just wondering if there is a different and cheaper way to go about fixing this.

I found that I could AAL. Which of these two options would be better/easier to do??

Cheaper would probably be the AAL, but the ride would get stiffer, best and easiest move would be to swap out the leaf packs completely.
