Default '94 B 4000 Handling & Parts

I'v owned a '99 Miata for 2 years and when I decided to buy a used truck, the Mazda seemed the way to go. I bought a used '94 B4000 LE4X2 Cab Plus model with 126,000 miles. It seems to be in fairly goodcondition but I have a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone more familiar with these trucks might be able to help me with.
First, it rides like a buckboard. It seems to settle down on the highway, but on local roads the suspension is almost punishing. Is this normal for a B4000? I'm guessing that it has what Mazda called its "Performance Package" which includedheavy-duty suspension pieces. All the same, it almost changes lanes when I hit a rough stretch of roadway. It also sits a little higher in the back than the front. Is this normal for this truck or do I have a suspension problem? It steers OK and there's no noises or clunks or anything to indicate a front end problem. Also, the steering feels looser than anything I've driven in the past several years and I'm wondering if that's normal as well for these trucks.
My other question is more appearance oriented. Does anyone know of a source for trim pieces like the bed tie-downs, trim rings for the styled steel wheels, center armrest for the 60/40 seat, and things like that? I'd be happy to pay whatever they're worth if I could only find them.
Any help anyone can provide will be most welcome. Thanks a lot.
