What can I do to get my truck to ride a little smoother on rough streets or over bumps. It jolts you pretty good on some bumps and is kinda annoying. The truck is all stock with around 66,XXX miles.

The bilsteins have me interested and they seem popular on here. I'm a little confused on which ones would work for me though.

Yeah, I think I'm leaning towards the smoother side. We also have a 2004 RCLB 1500 non Z71 and it rides pretty nice over bumps and bouncing in the field. Doesn't throw you around in the cab at all.

I think it might just be the Z71 shocks are a little stiffer then I want.

Also seems to drive like it is breezy out when it is not if that makes sense. I don't mean like rolling all over the road just not "on rails".

Sensatracs and lower the front end at least 1", ditch the rear block, re-align. Make sure it has the OE P rated tires at 35psi.
