F250 Ride

I've got a 2000 F250 4 X 4. The previous owner added some extra leafs to the rear springs. I find the ride is very rough even when towing a 10000 lb trailer. Now it feels as though the shocks are giving up and I'm getting tired of getting my hot tea in my left ear, the darn thing is close to undrivable.

I'm thinking of replacing the shocks, removing some of the spring and adding Firestone bags to give it lift when I tow. Anybody out there got some words of advice or has had a similar experience? (Don't worry I would know you by the food groups on your clothing and the total body bruising )

Thanks

Tony

You sound like you are on the right track. I have the same truck and my ride is a little rough without a load on. It might be worth your while to have custom set rear springs built by place like National or Atlas spring. How ever your plan dosent sound that bad so go with what works for ya.
