I agree with points already made: be smoother off the throttle, and run more compression and less rebound. You order the shock new or send one in for revalving. I run the Bilsteins, so that's what I have done. You might want to try a longer spring in the LR. This may help the car stay on the spring longer and no cause the car to bang down as hard.

I did the same thing with the sock, it helps a little bit, the main thing I had to do is learn to be really smooth with the throttle, when I learned to start rolling smooth out of the throttle it really helped the most.

This was something i forgot to mention (sorry) 2 footing the car into the corner will also help. What i mean by 2 footing is like power braking your street car. It also helps keep the car "loaded" through the corner

Thanks for the help guys i watch a tape and it looked like i was dumping the throttle it is just a bad habit i have got in too and its hard to keep my mind right it seems when i try to back off easy i let off way too early and loose alot of time i might try the two foot power brake too see how it works maybe the car will not push
