Default Hell Creek Springs = STIFF ride

The PO installed 2.5" Hell Creek lift springs on my 78 FJ40. I'm running 33x10.5 BFG TA's. The ride quality is horrible...especially in the front. I don't have big expectations with a leaf spring set-up but it feels like there is no softness at all in front end. The front shackles only have a slight angle to the front, which could be contributing to some of it. Do you think different shocks (Bilstiens) would help? Maybe going with Downeys springs or other brand? I'm only considering the front springs for now. Thanks. Doug
