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?

I had a Chevy 3/4 ton w/max. gross vehicle weight suspension in the '80s that rode about like this one.

So you're telling me that a non-tow package Crew Cab Titan rides this crappy?

There's gotta be a solution to this high-strung Nissan bouncy-bouncy.

I've had two Tundras that put this ride to shame. The reason I got the Titan was the: (1) crew cab option; (2) the reviews I read; plus, (3) the friends-and-family Nissan discount :)
