Groundforce Lower Kit Ride Quality - 4th gen
 
I'm really liking the look on my truck, but now that I've been "done" with the suspension for a while I have noticed that the ride is rougher than it was at first.. Re-cap on the truck-- 2009 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab, Groundforce kit with shocks, and 22" 305-45-22 Coopers..
Anyone else noticed a decrease in ride quality with a similar set up? I have noticed that the rough a$$ north Texas roads seem to bounce the truck and that there seems to be a "floating" feeling when I hit larger humps or dips. I was thinking of putting the stock shocks back on to see if the issue gets better...

How long in time and how many miles on kit. I just did mine and the ride suffered quite a bit from stock. I figured it would only get worse in time.

did you have those 45 series tires on before you dropped it? carefull with the longer shocks as they might allow the suspension to drop too much and the coils to come out.

Do you have a pic of your set-up?

Here are some pics. I didn't have the 45 series on, but the roughness doesn't bother me as much as the floating feeling I get when I hit dips or humps. Kinda feels like driving a caddy with no shocks, only way better looking;)
