Default bouncy ride

Im after a bit of advice, I've had my wj for around 6 months. When i first got her sh need a bit of attention, the main being suspension bushes. So I've just recently replaced all the bushes under the car and installed new ironman shocks (came with kings raised springs and 245 70 17 cooper stt pros).
After this the car is still very bouncy and a still a shitty ride.
I've done some measuring and the car has about 3 inches of lift, it sits at 770mm from bottom of rim to guard.
Ive ordered a track bar ( 5 mins ago haha ) because when undid the track bar i had to jack the axle back across to re fit the track bar bolt.
Im wondering if anyone has any experience with the springs or shocks or have and idea why its so bouncy and any advice on how to fix it

Find an expert of engineering who can adjust the shock absorber valving.

Weigh the vehicle's front and rear on an accurate weighbridge.

Find the spring rates front and rear.

Hand the information to the engineer.

The engineer will decide if the spring rates are correct, and if your shock absorbers are able to be revalved, then they can be fixed. If not, will need better shocks and revalved to correct the suspension bouncing.

Once the spring rates are correct and the shock valving are corrected the ride will be way better.

We have used Ironman Pro shocks on our Toyota and once the spring rating and shock valving sorted it was excellent.

Sounds like it would be easier to start with some decent spring's/shock's in the first place.
