Default LT tire pressure?

Hello,
just put a set of Pirelli Scorpions ATR LT 265/70 17s 121/118s on my 2011 RAM.
So far I like these tires as they are just as quiet as the stock GoodYears I had, while the thread looks more appropriate for some off roading and Michigan winters.

I did notice the truck is a bit "bouncier" now, so I checked the pressure. 48psi in the front and 44 in the back. I am sure this should be reversed, but would like your input. This tire is E-load rated, and according to this site it can hold up to 80 psi!

I do not need this much pressure, however I am looking for some guidance on the LT tire in general, compared to the P rated tires as far as the recommended pressure goes.

Also, I found in some posts as to how low psi on LT tire is more "damaging" compared to the P rated tire.
Thanks much...

I called a friend with a tire shop and he suggested running at 60-75% max under normal driving situations on the LT tire and using max pressures if your under full load or at max towing weight. That would be 52 to 60 psi.
