99 CCLB 8"fabtech lift ride quality help

I have a late 99 with a 8"Fabtech lift, it was on the truck when i bought it and it is due for shocks. Is their anyway to soften the ride of this thing without breaking the bank, it rides like a covered wagon. I want to keep the height of it but would like a softer ride. As of now it has the Fabtech dual front shocks(standard white ones) that come with their kit and they are leaking fluid everywhere. Would shocks help this alot, and is their something else to look into also that is fairly inexpensive to do?
