The shocks will help some but the difference between a 1500 and 2500 in bounciness is night and day just on the design. If you load the bed with weight some of the bounciness will be eliminated in the 2500.This might sound silly as a truck owner but I would like on my next one, not as bouncy. Sounds silly but my dogs don't like it. Lol
I would like some luxury inferior.
