for the rear, you could remove a leaf to soften the ride, and then if you dont want the lower ride height that is associated with removing a leaf, then just add a pair of air shocks to raise the truck back up, it will ride softer on the air.

I'm planning to install an Air Ride Tech "Airbar" unit to soften the ride.
The main problem is the leaf-springs. Being stiff enough to haul 1/2 ton, it's pretty stiff when unloaded.

You could change the springs to the ones zq8 trucks use.
