Tongue Lower / suspension change to AUII XR8 ute

I have just bought an XR8 ute with pursuit body kit fitted and want some suggestions to lower it and improve the ride.
It is an AUII and has 17" wheels, it is a bumpy ride and I have been told a few sandbags might improve the ride, and some slight mods to suspension may be all I need. It has Tickford suspension.

Any ideas I don't want to spend a fortune just improve the ride, and cornering and overall look of the car....want it all really..

Hi mate, King spring's in the front and lower and reset leaf's in the rear, if you want a better ride you need good shock's, ie Koni but it start's to become costly at this stage, the ride should be allright in an XR with Tickford suspension though.

Herrod mod's,mmmn.
