Are you trying to carry more weight? If so, air bags do a better job and are very adjustable.

X4, with a partial load in the bed or very rough roads, ride was pretty erratic as the suspension transitioned back and forth with the Timbrens. Switched to air bags and ride was predictable at any air pressure.

Airbags all the way. There is a reason commercial trucks run them on the trucks, trailers, and cabs..
