Any advice on getting a softer smoother ride?

I have a 1980 Firebird that I've been slowly fixing up. It's coming along good I swapped a new engine Trans and rear end into it and it runs like a champ. But the suspension on this thing is basically all original and wore out. So far I've just put bolt on subframe connectors on it it has air shocks in the back. I do have big Mickey Thompson sportsmans in the back which may contribute to the rough ride. I live in Ohio and we have pretty rough roads and this thing just rides so hard it feels like it's going the break apart when I hit even the smallest bumps in the road.

Any things I can do to make it ride softer through the city? Any specific bushings I should go after or suspension parts to upgrade?
