I have a 15 xlt scab 4x2. Ford put out a special service memo involving a reflash of the BCM for the flighty steering, helped a lot. from there Timbren's eliminated sag. finally replaced P.O.S rear shocks world of difference. It seems to be a problem with the lighter aluminum body and softer suspension as well as the EPAS electric steering.

I just noticed that if your current tires have a 111 load rating it is 350lbs less that the 116s that came on mine (and almost 1000lbs below LTs). With a 31 foot TT you may be way over what they can handle.

Dump the P metric tires. I had P metrics as the sidewalls are too soft. At least go with a C load range LT tire. I use GY Wrangler AT's.

LT/E tires ad a good anti-sway bar will help a lot with the stability. For the squat, airbags would be my choice.
