Default rough ridding bouncing rear end?

My truck rides like crap I have a 3" body lift and 2" blocks and 33/12.5/15. I put new shocks on and still rides really really rough. Any suggestions on how to make it ride smoothly

Crank the tbars the opposite way. If they are bottomed out it will cause premature failure of your cv shafts and driveshaft from being at such a harsh angle. Mine are backed off about 1/4 of an inch and it doesn't ride terrible, still bouncy, but not bad.
