ranger rides like crap

I read all these post on how everyone with coilovers or RCD loves the way their truck rides. Maybe mines the black sheep because it rides like crap-put on some 750# hypercoils-its a little bit better but still hella rough, bounces all over the place-super stiff. I know its not gonna ride great, but i hear people saying their trucks ride better than stock-def not mine. any suggestions?

fox shocks?
bumpstops are cut, should i just remove em all together?

750# coils arent going to make it ride less stiff, thats a heavier spring than what they come with stock. what size tires are you running. larger heavier tires have more of an effect on ride than most people realize. more unsprung weight means bouncier crappier ride. i like how my RCD rides, its does ride better than stock, but the heavy 33's make it bouce around a little more than it used to.

I thought the RCD Kit came with #650's ?
If so then go to a less of a spring rate and run a lower pressure in the tires.
