Default shocks maybe?

Hey everyone.

Last night i was driving to dinner and had a total of 5 people in the truck, a few bumps felt like i was close to bottoming out the rear suspension. Ive had a few ram 1500s and never noticed this with only a few people in the truck, and a few weeks ago i had 24pallets in the bed and i definatley bottomed out over a bump. Shocks?

Thanks
Jeff

Being a 2006 and sounds like you've used your truck for heavy loads, I'd recommend some new leaves as well if your ride is sagging excessively.

Gantman makes a good point, worth looking into. They will make a huge difference, particularly if carrying loads.
