HL springs will actually stiffen the ride. They are supposed to add about 100lbs to the weight carrying capacity of the bike. The Perfex long travel suspension kit is probably the easiest and cheapest way to get a softer ride. You could also replace the shock/spring assembly with the adjustable ones from the Canadian Trail Edition bikes.
I just put the Perfex LT kit on mine and it made a HUGE difference. I had to stiffen up the back just so it did not drag on the ground with me on it! lol I'm adding HL springs this week and will let you know how it works out!
