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?

When my Titan was stock, (with big tow and off road), it was bouncy too. I replace the rear shocks with the Bilstein's that PRG selects, and then modifies the mounting for the Titan, shown here.
These are not the same as the blue/yellow ones that are sold all over and probably have very different valving, so my comments only relate to those shown.
They firmed up the ride a lot and eliminated 99% of the bounciness, and made the Titan feel like it was on tracks. Where with stock, a bump that would bounce two or three times would give a single, firmer hit., (, lists two different leaf springs for the 4x4.
