    Looks like its set to soft, it spins at the hit, unloads the chassis and spins again 10 ft out.

    could be both, where is the compression set now? however stiffer rebound would help, what setting on front shocks.

    don,t know how many clicks your shock have, but i would go half on compression, and two over half on rebound, and watch the 60, either taking more hit out, or put more in. maybe me but i like a little more frontend travel than that, i am better able to control for the lack of a better word, snap rotation, in other words the frontend comes up too fast, and the tires brake traction. i would try the shock adjustments first, then look at the frontend thing. good luck been there
