is it the front suspension that you don't like? or the rear suspension?

different shocks, ditch the AAL in favor of airbags!

You will start to notice the sag visually by the bumper getting closer to the ground and the front will feel be choppy like being in a boat. About the alignment, you def have some really wrong if you can notice your camber getting worse. I would return the rear to stock and then go from there just to see how it feels. And yes beeter shocks FTW

i say get 33s More side wall with less air= softer ride


My truck is smother than when it has 235 tires i run 35psi in my 31s and it rides nice for a truck.

I have to agree with cam on this one if you want a smooth ride get a car
