Default tires and suspension help

Hello again folks.

Have a 2005 silverado z71 4x4.

This truck rides like it's on 4 pool cues to be honest and the tires are noisy as hell on the road.

Has the optional air suspension and Bridgestone Dueler APT P-265-70-R17 113S tires.

Any suggestions for an easier ride would appreciated.

Not taken it to a shop to check front end yet to see if the torsion bars have been adjusted.

No hurry on any answers.

Having Aorta neck surgery in the morning so no driving for a while.

post a picture of the treadwear pattern; front and rear
most common growling sounds can be from aggressive tire tread pattern, irregular treadwear or bad wheel bearings
