if you used keys, then yes. everyone here seems to like the bilsteins and ranchos. mine rides like stock with extended shock brackets tho:thumb

yes, a leveling kit will do this every day of the week. The only leveling kit that doesn't ride harsher than stock per se would be the cognito leveling kit with new upper control arms, or just a lift kit believe it or not.

heres a after pic...will add shocks today or tomorrow. The front rides "bulldog" but I don't think that has anything to do with it.

replaced shocks before 1200mi drive and rode a ton better. I removed the old shocks and pushed them all the way down and they did not come back up, so at that point I new they were bad.
