Default I need to be SHOCKED!

Hey Guys,i've got a 07 1500 4x4 with the TRX suspension. While i'm certain the current stock setup may be great for any serious offroading i may do for camping or rec reasons,i'm curious about being able to find some shocks to allow me more ways to fine tune the ride. As we took the truck to Charlotte this past weekend for an auto fair,the ride sometimes was a reminder that if i could find a set of shocks to help adjust the ride,i should.So i'm curious if anyone can share any ideas/experiences of what options could be explored to make my ride a kinder/gentler beast! So speak out and give me some ideas.
Thanks-DeWayne

If you are looking into fine tuning your ride take a look at the Rancho RS9000X fully adjustable series. The shocks by themselves are manually controlled unless you purchase the controls for inside cab use.

Thanks Duece,i do wanna somehow find a way to maybe "soften" the ride without a complete redo of suspension components if possible. Mant times i find the transistion on/off bridges a lil harsh and maybe the ride could have helped contribute to my bounce across a bridge last march that directed me into a guardrail and the need to replace both a wheel & a bumper.With the front setting lower than the rear,the shift of weight obviously adds a lil more effort to steering control.
