Default Suspension Jarring

The suspension, esp in the rear is very jarring now. Feel every bump. Airbags are fine, vehicle raises and lowers and stays at the regular level. What could have gone wrong? Could it be rear struts?

If so, I would rather go for complete coil replacement and 1.5-2" lift all around. What is a budget setup which allows me to go 255/80R17 or 255/75r17 without rubbing. Need good ride quality, atleast as good as stock.

Sounds like the shocks are not working well anymore. Have to tried the shocks adjustments on the GX? These can adjust the firmness of the shocks, which could impact your ride quality.

I tried comfort setting etc., but its jarring. I guess its new Bilsteins for now. I will go for air bag replacement later. but if labor is high, then get both done right now. Metal tech complete kit with FJ coils? Which year FJ? Would like about 1-1.5" ride height increase.

For front Bilsteins would give me one inch raise? Will ride suffer

So I spoke to Jeff at Toy connection. I think he did your truck?
He says 900$ for OME medium duty kit (lift and conversion) + 400$ for the install.

What do you guys think?
