98 rear suspension question

My 98 stepside rides like it has a 1 ton suspension in the rear. I can go over small bumps in the road or a heavily painted crosswalk and it will want to bounce sideways. I deflated the tires some but its the same result. Since its a small bed and Im not planning to haul heavy loads with a trailer, what is a good way to soften up the suspension for daily use?
