Air Bags Lifts....

I just got my 2008 Ford F-350 Dually outta the shop. I put 22.5 wheels on there with 255/70/22.5. I took it on a 5 hour trip to Dayton, OH. It was a rough ride there and back. The tires are the reason they ride rough because they all have 100psi of air. But I'm looking to find a nice durable Shocks or Air Bags. And i do tow alot. Give me some ideas and if you have they shocks/air bags post some pics of it!

On the back end of my 350 I made an air bag assisted type setup. I removed 2 of the main leaf springs and mounted the air bags inboard of the frame. I used a leveling valve they use on big rigs with air ride. After I removed the leaf springs the truck sat about an inch and half low in the rear so I adjusted the leveling valve to level the truck out. Now no mater what load I have on it wether it be a trailer or 7000# in the bed she always sits level. As for the front I have no idea what to do. Maybe a set of progressive coils. That is what I used on the front of my Bronco to keep the front end from squating when I raised the plow.
