Well, for starters, any 5 inch lift springs are going to ride roughly. I use 2.5 in springs and 1.5 lift shackles to get 4 inches, just right for a little trimming and 35s. I had to soften mine up aswell. Make sure the springs aren't rusted together, and that there are some liners to reduce friction. I like teflon myself. Next check that none of your spring eye bolts are overly tightened. While your at it, grease the bushings with some high quality synthetic grease. Make sure your shocks are in good shape. Try removing them and seeing if that helps, but don't drive that way for long. I would suggest removing one or two springs, depending on how much lift you can sacrifice. If this doesn't help, get new springs!

I would start by opening up the little cage that wraps around the sping. When I did this to mine they flexed a ton more.
