Front end seems really bouncy

So I recently changed my shocks on my F250 to some Bilstein 5125s. I used the medium valving in the rear and the light valving in the front. The front I have dual shocks so I was told that I would need the softer valving up front. Now the problem seems to be that the front end bounces up and down anytime I hit a bump. So my question is are the shocks too soft or do I have another problem? The ride was stiff before but it was way better than the ride now.
