    I can feel every bump that my 2012 international prostar hits, it's gradually getting worse. Every bump jars us pretty badly. All the airbags are tight and I do not hear any air leaking, could it be the rear shocks, the cab shocks??? It's so bad that when we hit bumps it sometimes knock my gps completely off its magnetic mount. Every bump beats us to death.

    Shocks could definitely help. Look or feel for oil leaking and to see if they're warm or cool. Oil...bad. Cool...bad. Low or no oil in the shock means no dampening. Cool to touch means they aren't doing anything.
    Edit: check temperature after driving for a while.

    Check front cab mounts. I replace prostar mounts more than all others.

    Is it possible your are bags have to much air in them and are so hard that thy aren't effective? Might try adjusting them a little bit.

    Cab shocks. Next time you stop, go the the back of the cab, grab the fairing and try to rock the cab up and down. If shocks are good, the cab won't move. If you own the truck and want to replace, look up Pro Ride cab suspension.
