Have you checked static sag in the front? Should be around 20-25mm. This is the distance your front forks compress with ONLY the weight of the bike. What about rider sag? Should be around 30-35mm. This is the distance the forks compress with the weight of you on the bike. I think this should be your first step.
I had the same issues you describe. My sag #'s were all over the place, after applying some tested theories the ride could not be better.
