swap front springs, softening the RR will only make it worse......

Swap the rear springs, put 93-5's on the rear.

swap front springs this will tighten entry and lossen exit some, so increase lr spring, to compensate. then the car will be tighter in and about the same off.
as far as slamming down, try to drive smoother(main reason why cars slam), another thing you can do but pricy is a get a custom vavle lr shock, like a 97-2 vavle or something, this will let the car get up on the bars very quickly and slow down how fast it drops. also a different lf spring will help. like a 76 vavle, you want a hard compression on it because it is also slamming down when you get off the gas and upsetting the car. so i would go with like 76 on it.
