If you like the way it sits now you'll be miles ahead financially and headachewise if you rework your present suspension. A frame swap is a major undertaking. Look at changing spring rates and shocks.

Try some softer springs..and work on the shock valving..that should help..sound like it is set up waaay too stiff..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
