Default Probably a dumb question ?

My 06' PW that came with with the Bilstien shocks needed to be replaced last year. I replaced them with the Rancho 5000's, but after replacing I feel my truck doesn't stay on the road like I need it to. I feels like it is bouncing around a lot. I think the compression of the Rancho is good, but am I getting too much rebound ? I am really considering going back to the OE Bilstien....also i have been chasing the death wobble issue lately and want to try the schocks maybe before replacing tires....please give your feedback. Thanks

I see a lot of people say to play with the air pressure in the tires. Have you recently added air since the shocks?
Also, the shocks could be a little more stiff since they are new, causing it to bounce around more on rough roads.

Hi thank you for the reply. I recently went to 50 psi on my Bfg 315's on the front and a hair shy of 40 on the rear. Now i am at 45/40. Iv'e had the Ranchos on for 5 mos. now and really no improvement.My whole front end is new due to death wobble and the last two things i'm going to do are the Bilsteins and the Nittos.There are a lot of negative comments on the Bfg's and a couple good ones.
