Ditto on the spring swap. Airbags, RAS, additional leafs, whatever, in your case are all kludges trying to cover up the problem. Just fix it.

I am running the X code but with a Ranch Hand bumper. Probably pretty close overall to a stock bumper diesel with the W code. Felt overly stiff at first but after a couple days I got used to it.
