What would you recommend to beef up the suspension without destroying the ride quality??

What are you towing with it ? I have a 2010 Ram i tow my trailer with and i noticed even with my WDH it squatted lots....after reading tonnes of reviews on airlift 1000 airbags i purchased and installed them...I Run them at 25PSI and they are AMAZING..They will raise the ride back to stock height as if there was no trailer hooked up....i purchased them on amazon for $87 shipped and had them installed myself in a hour....I would totally reccommend these, they are great.
