My ride is to stiff. Whats wrong?

When ever I ride over railroad tracks or any small dips or holes in the road , it rattles my teeth loose. If I drive over the flat reflectors in the center of the road if fills like someone is hittting the car with a hammer. So much that it jars the fuses loose in their holders (which doesn't take much to do) .

I dont think it's the shocks, could it be bushings and if so which ones. The car is a 77 and to my knowledge the bushings or shocks have not been replaced . I know our cars are setup for a stiff suspension, but this is more like a hard thump. I found a few things using the search function ,but no real answers to my problem. The shocks are green (Bilstens)
