Put M800 tyres.
Just kidding yaar. Stiffen the rear shocks and reduce the leaf springs. Also get a custom strut brace fitted to reduce body roll.

Have a 500 kg load on the rear..basically thats the best one caqn do as the gypsies have stiff suspension for offroad capabilities..
Also, bear in mind they are 20 years old in design..

Reduce the number of leaf springs by one or two (from the top) from each stack and get some good gas dampers. Find the optimum setting and continue to the next stage.
Take apart all your leafsprings then clean it well of all the dirt and the rust and then regrease the whole stack applying grease liberally between the leafs and wrap the whole leaf spring stack with leather (yes leather). This should hold the grease in place and won't let dirt get in between the leafs and will give a better ride than before. When dirt & water gets in between the leafs it'll make the suspension stiffer.
