04 lift causing loose fillings

Looking at getting a PSD. Found a great looking and running truck, an 04 F250 CCLB. Has a lift of unknown brand and shocks. Drove it and felt like I'd lose my lunch. Also feels like it hops over bumps or rough roads, which makes me nervous. Will different springs and shocks fix this?

I'm used to 4 wheel coils in my current truck, so I know it'll be stiffer but I know it shouldn't be that bad.

Stiff shocks and over pressurized tires will have adverse affects to the ride.

It matters how the lift was done too. I'm lifted 6" and it drives just fine. Lift springs in the front, with a shackle flip and lift springs in the rear. Rough country shocks which I plan to upgrade in the future.
