Ride comfort

I have this 97 F350 CC 4x4 long bed. Pulls good, needs a chip and some intake/exhaust work. It rides like a buckboard. Can't hardly carry a conversation on while driving, especially on the choppy concrete highway, asphalt's not too bad. any good ways to calm it down a little? I know it's a 1 ton and they are a little stiffer riding, even loaded trailer doesn't help much and a incorreectly loaded trailer is even worse. Any thoughts?

About your only option is 250 springs or I guess air ride.

You could do the shackle reverse kit and Super Duty springs.

You need some Velvet Ride Shackles under that beast. I happen to have a set for sale if you want. NIB
