I would recommend air bags to take the porpoising out of the ride. The problem is that the way the leaf packs are on the trucks it progressively increases the spring rate by the truck squatting and coming into contact more leaves.

Air bags will increase the spring rate and eliminate the need for the truck to squat to increase spring rate. Plus, not matter what you load and how you load it you can level the truck out with air bags...

I truly believe in air bags and I am a firm believer that most people on here towing heavy should have a set installed! Very highly recommended on my end!

Oh my, I think a trip to the CAT scale is in order and some cyphering. Like the above posts there are probably some things you can do to minimize the chucking and such, but the root cause is likely to be overloading of your payload limits, at least.

You can try air bags and a different hitch and they will make a difference, but I would get to a scale and see what the situation on loading is. IMO
