99 4wd Silverado Suspension Upgrade

What has everyone done to get a smoother ride out of our trucks?

I just replaced the shocks. It still feels like it did with the old wore out shocks. front feels like it doesnt have much give at all. Rear has a little more. But still not smooth.

I know Im asking a lot out of these trucks. I just want something a bit smoother.

Ive been looking at 4 bar kits for the rear and coil over kits for the front. everything looks pretty simple.

Figure get rid of the leafs in the rear. Add the 4 link with coils in the rear. maybe a set of adjustable shocks.
Front ill get rid of the torsion bars. Add adjustable coil overs.

With having access to a shop i could get it done in a weekend.

Whats everyones thoughts on this?
Or has anyone done this yet?

Is it a torsion bar truck? I'm not being a smart alec, but don't over look tired, are they 10ply? Just a thought before you spend a bunch, Lord knows I've done it.
