There are different calibrations for jounce and rebound controlled by inertia valves or pressure valves or even a combination of the two.
See SDtrucksprings, Rockauto or Summitracing for more info.

Thanks Beau388. I had no idea that many options were available.
Have you replaced your shocks? If so, what did you pick?
