as above - if you take out suspension travel and effectivley stiffen the springs it will get harsher.
Better dampers will help - so get some good short travel dampers (shocks) and it will be less harsh but still it will be stiff.
Designers divide the suspension characteristics into handling, ride and road holding. Usually increase one decreases the others.
