Bouncy Ride After lowering

Bouncy Ride After lowering

Postby 04gmckehh [OP] » Nov 16 2019, 7:34am

So i took my truck to a shop to get lowered a few days ago and the truck looks great, but it rides really bouncy and I just wanna know whats going on. I used this kit: https://www.suspensionsuperstore.com/19 ... 330924-ns/
It's a 2/4 drop and i had the shop put new shocks in as well all around

They could have put cheap shocks on it.

Isn't that, "par for the course" when you lower a vehicle????

Every lowered vehicle I've seen, seems to BOUNCE over the bumps in the road vs. having the suspension take it. Just saying, not arguing.

With the kit using knuckles, and hangers/shackles, the ride should not have changed at all. I'm betting the rear end is sitting on or really close to the bump stops.

Nope. It shouldn’t have. But when adding the cheap $85 shocks that come with the kit. That can do it.
