While Bilsteins are known to be of excellent quality, huntergreen you are correct in that they are also known to be somewhat stiff. I would do some research before you go replacing your OEM shocks with Bilsteins, especially as pricey as they are. I don't think that's going to get you a softer ride. Honestly, I thought the coilspring rear suspensions of the new trucks was supposed to provide a "car like" ride. I'm kind've at a loss as to what you could do to improve it.
