I'm guessing they're round because of axle flex and roll, but not sure.

I've heard good stuff about The Roadmaster system as well.

Hellwig Load Pro or other "Add-A-Leaf" might also help?

Edit: I had Roadmaster Active Suspension on my 1/2 Ton, and it was nice and helped a lot, but I don't know what they have for HD applications...

Buy a 5th wheel... We have a SD that I have towed our TT with and will never do it again because I was all over the road. As we speak, my sister and bil are using the SD pulling their 29L and he made a comment about a lot of sway. You see Ford super dutys all over pulling big campers and I cant believe its only ours that are producing bad sway. You hook up my folks 5th wheel to it and the truck pulls perfect, no sway or excessive bounce. Not sure what im doing wrong, but Ill stick to my Tahoe for towing a bumper pull.

On a side note, make sure you have the tires fully inflated. If they are soft, you may experiance some of the problems you have

I'm not sure why they are round ether and not flat. Makes no sense. I have new mitchellen on the truck with the pressure recommended on door. Not sure if I should take the timbrens off or not. Your right we can't be the only ford owners experiencing this. What year is your super duty. Do other year SD have these round bump stop stoppers.

Seems like most of the F-series super duty 4WD trucks I see out there have "saggy butts" towing trailers. I always just assumed that Ford designed the 4WD suspension with more emphasis on the suspension flex advantage to off-roading than to the support needed for heavy hauling. It's one of the reasons I didn't consider Fords when I was shopping for my 3/4T truck. This thread is interesting reading for sure.

Funny you should say that. Ford has a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on low riding Super Duty's. Customers complaining how low the trucks dips, even with light loads. Huge fuss around here on it. The TSB says to replace the jounce plates, u-bolts, spacer plates and driveshaft! About a $2000 job...that YOU pay for if you want a higher "old school butt up" stance. Ridiculous.

Just FYI...

The new Super Duty's sit higher. Ford must have listened.
