bouncy shocks ?

Hi,I'm new to this sight,I just purchased a 1999 crew cab 2wd dually .I was wandering about the shocks.I replaced the shocks that were on the truck with monroe gas magnums.I can lean on the truck and bounce the frontend really easy,it bounces about 3to4 times before settling back down. I was looking for a suggestin on a better quality shock that won't make the truck feel like a log wagon.

Ha. Bilstein's are one of the best. I have those yellow Monroe's and they are a little better because the old ones were shot. I mean shot. But the shocks don't keep it from bouncing. They don't have a TON of pressure in them. They absorb shocks in the road.
