I'm going to assume you are either hopping too high, forcing your landing down, or just aren't used to grinding yet.
Maybe record a few clips of you doing then to analyze what you're doing.

Double pegs are my worst grind, I slam them down too. But they're getting better with experience.

They slam hard on ledges, and low rails, but handrails and shit feel smooth

I only double peg ledges if they are over bar hight otherwise I just double peg rails but I don't feel like I'm slamming. Only on lower ledges it kinda does.

Double pegs are easy.
You just try not to hop as high & imagine gliding on the lege/rail or at least thats what I do.

Only if you slam them down.

You can learn to land softer and then you are quieter, and typically can slide farther. Slamming down will slow you down.

My doubles are awful on ledges. I just slam them around and I can only stay on for like a second. I'll just stick with smiths, and ice's and tooths, and stuff like that.

You just gotta keep on doing them till you get smooth enough.
