Default Bouncy Ride after new parts - Help!!

Hey all,
Ok so I am hoping that you will be able to tell me whats wrong and how to fix it.

I just finished up (for the most part) a good over haul on my suspension.
She is a 03 H2 with about 140,000 miles.
The H2 got new Timken front hubs, Moog tie rod ends, Moog Pitman and Idler arms, Moog ball joints upper and lower, Skyjacker Nitro shocks (sincgle shock replacement all 4 corners), Supreme Suspension 3" lift kit (keys in front / spacers in rear), Arnot air bag to spring conversion, OEM springs cushions for rear, and some new Moto Metal wheels (18x10) with 38 x 15.50 Toyot Open Country MT tires on them.

Now as I drive the truck almost feels like a bouncy house. Any little bump in the road and we are bouncing in the truck. I also have developed a some bump steer / float steer. Basically I hit a bump sometimes.... and she goes one way or another. And sometimes she just just floats on her own too.

I have gotten everything aligned so that shouldnt be an issue, but yeeah to drive this vehicle is a real work out now.

You guys have any ideas on what is wrong or any ideas on how to resolve all this?

Thanks

It's the bump stop that is attached to the frame. Brand new, it's yellow but it turns brown/black over time. Looks like this: http://www.elcovaforums.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=42003

jsbihn - was the problem your bump stop? I'm about to do some similar suspension work as one of my wheel hubs went bad and i'm going to be due for tires soon. Can you post up a couple photos of your setup? I'd like to see the stance/lift you got with the mods and 38s. Thanks!
