You should try some new, good shocks. I don't know what you mean about "can be push down by hand". Have you tried that with a gas charged shock? It's extremely difficult to do unless you're superman.
Putting new KYB Monomax shocks on my '05 Chevy dually did in fact make a vast difference with hauling my 4,000 pound truck camper.

OP, I had Bilsteins on my '07 Chevy 3500 SRW hauling my truck camper. They made a difference and I liked them. When I switched to using the '05 dually for the camper I gave the KYB Monomax a try. The local store was running a "buy 3 get one free" deal. I think the KYB made a bigger improvement than the Bilsteins did. When these wear out, if they do, I'll be going with KYB again.
