Make sure that the prior owner did not change out the Rear Leafs + Make sure that there are NO airbags installed with 60 PSI or Pressure

I don't think they changed out the leaf springs cause every ID tag thistruck had when it left the factory is still there. I checked through my warrenty booklet and shocks are not covered under it. Struts are but not shocks.
Rotors are not covered either and I think that is my chattering problem from my other thread so I'll be making a trip to the parts store to at least get rear shocks for now. The fronts and the rotor will be changed later.

Question

Hey have you checked the air pressure in your tires. running too mutch air pressure will cause the truck to ride rough and it also changes tire wear, have you checked the steering stablizer , jessman

My shocks were doing the same. Every time I hit a bump, the bed would bounce to the left, and the whole truck would keep on bouncing for a few. I was told that the shocks were gone and the leaf spring on the pass side was doing all of the bouncing.

Sorry haven't been on the web for a few days.Been spending time with my son. I'm going to try changing out my shocks and see what that does. I'm not sure when I'll get to it though cause I'm starting to have problems with my XB so I'll be looking into it first since that is my work vehicle and No worky no eaty. I'll let everyone know how it works out when I get a chance to do it.

Well I got a chance to change out my rear shocks and WOW! what a difference that made. I still need some front ones but they aren't as bad as the rears were. I pulled the pass. rear off and it was leaking so bad I don't know how it had any oil in it. Crazy I tell ya.
