Rough Riding Splash

Just installed Monroe Sensa tracs,
It'll jar the fillings out of your teeth.
Wonder if I made a wrong purchase.
Also the tires are Mastercraft Avenger GT's P235/60R15
Sidewall says 44lbs. Max Pressure.
I have them @ 40 lbs.

I have BFG Long Trail T/A's and I ran them for awhile at 37 lbs, the ride was a bit harsher with the added 5 bls. I also have the Sensa Trac shocks but changed the oem link pins. The rubber bushings helped a bunch with smoothing the ride out. I went back to 32 psi.

Just an update, replaced rear cab mounts, they were totally gone, front mounts & rad mounts were in fine shape.
Truck rides like a different vehicle, cab must have been resting on the frame.
I noticed the cab & bed lines were way off, so that's what made me take a closer look, glad I did .
