I've got a problem with my rear end...need your advice

First, Happy New Year!

OK, not so-much a problem with MY rear-end, but the rear suspension of my '06 Titan CrewCab XE 2x4 >>>>with Tow Package<<<<<.

I bought this baby new, off the Nissan dealer's lot, in '06. It had everything I wanted except for the Tow Package. I didn't need it but the price was right and I was hot-n-bothered to get a new Titan.

I'm fed-up with the stiffness of the rear suspension. When I purchased the truck, I suspected the shocks had helper springs and I could just swap out the shocks. Wrong!

I keep about about 400 lbs. of bagged mulch in the bed as a temporary fix. Well, a year later, I'm ready to fix the problem.

Questions: Does the Tow Package version have an extra "layer" of leaf spring? If so, Is it possible to remove "it" or do I go with replacing the sets?

Is there another avenue to take to make the rear suspension not feel like a log wagon?

Welcome and happy new year to you too!

Unfortunately, the tow package doesn't change the suspension at all. The tow package adds lower gears in the axle(s), tow hitch, heavy-duty battery, trailer wiring, tow mirrors, trans temp gauge...

Replacing the shocks will help the ride a little bit depending on what you put on there, but hey, it's a truck. You could always swap out the leafs with airbags. :D
