You could switch from using sigma+epsilon to using c6+c12 for LJ
interactions - see sections 5.3.3 and 5.7.1 in the manual; this would
give you individual control over the attractive and repulsive terms.
You don't mention if your forcefield parameters are all custom - if
apart from your LJ particles you use some atom types from a forcefield
with sigma+epsilon (like OPLSaa) you need to convert those to c6+c12
as well.
