What PSI are you running in your tires?

Besides checking to see if you have a blown shock and too much air in your tires, remember that these trucks are designed to haul a load and ride better with at least a couple hundred pounds over the rear axle.

That looks like some sort of lift in the rear. Does it have add-a-leafs or a taller block? The shocks might be overextending if they are stock but some height was added. A taller tire with more sidewall can also help absorb some bumps but these are trucks, so they won't really ride smooth.

Everything looks stock underneath and the left rear shock is leaking it's wet. I'll get it lowered down one day I don't like the rear that tall

I got this truck to haul my pressure washing equipment with but things didn't work out like I planned but still good to have a truck. I will take pictures of the under side tomorrow evening let you guys look at it cause I mite miss something an I'll check the tire psi.

RCSB trucks ride rougher than longer trucks, it's the nature of the short wheel base beast. They also tend to look taller in the rear, optical illusion. I too will be removing my blocks very soon. O'reilly's carries a couple size u-bolts in stock in stock.
