Why is my ride so harsh with coils?

I bought a 99 4.0 and it had been converted to coil springs and it rides horribly. I am not sure what brand of conversion it is. Any ideas as to why or what I can do? I have never had a vehicle that rides so bad. It looks like the suspension bushings are newish as well as the shocks. The vehicle was really well taken care of maintenance wise by the PO. Is it just the springs? Does anyone make a cushy spring suspension for these? I currently have newer 19" factory wheels with the factory Michelin 4x4 Synchrone tires.

We changed ours from 18" to 19" and it really does make the ride harsher.
How much of the EAS is left on the vehicle - it might be your best option to convert back. It won't necessarily cost much more than a new set of springs.

The other thing that made for a poor ride on ours, which became even more evident after putting the 19s on, was worn upper and lower ball joints.
