Default Clunk on Rear Suspension - Replace with Softer Spring?

I have a 05 Terraza, similar to the Relay. I have a issue where there are loud clunks over bumps on the rear suspension.

My service advisor said I have two options, keep the original springs or replace with a softer, but with less capacity. If I use the new ones that won't clunk, I will lose the load weight of 600 pounds.

I do not plan to carry 7 adults very often. This may happen occasionally if needed. I checked the specs of the van, the maximum load capacity is 1457 pounds. So, with the newer springs, I will have only 857 pounds left.

Doesn't the automatic load leveling springs compensate when the springs are being compressed? Or going over max will cause problems even with auto leveling?
