Some tips on load balancing on ASA:


With Active/Active failover, both units can pass network traffic. This lets you configure load balancing on your network. Active/Active failover is only available on units running in multiple context mode. To provide load balancing, use Active/Active failover. If you do not want to provide load balancing, use Active/Standby or Active/Active failover


The security appliance does not provide load balancing services. Load balancing must be handled by a router passing traffic to the security appliance.


For load balancing configurations, you should assign each failover group a different unit preference
