softer suspension posible?

I got over the whole racing mode and I want a softer suspension. I have tokico blue with stock springs and a rear sway bar. I also think my bushings are gone. What shock/spring combo will give me softer ride? Like a Camry?

The stock suspension is about as soft and plush as there is if that's all you're looking for. Anything (spring wise) from the aftermarket is going to firm it up. Are you saying you don't like the stock springs with the Tokico blues combo. That's certainly not a performance setup and about as soft as you can get component wise.
