Try playing with things that will effect weight transfer, droop, front anti-dive, BRAKE bias, ect, ect...

You do know how to adjust the truck in the air, right? Throttle brings the nose up, brake brings it down...

What is your truck doing wrong currently? And what springs and shock fluid do you have in it? What kind of truck? Does it do it all the time or just sometimes? Is it over various jumps or always one specific one?
