Looking to smooth out ride...
I'm looking to smooth out the ride of my truck. I'll be getting some new tires soon and I'm still debating between D and E rated tires. It gets very hot here in Texas and I'm a little concerned with the D rated tires. I might prefer the extra ply's.
I've asked several questions about tire pressure and it seems that everyone runs 60-80PSI. I suppose that is what I should run, but I don't do any pulling and very minimal hauling. If I put 500lbs in the bed, that's a bunch.
So once I figure out if I get D or E Rated tires, I also want to change the struts/shocks. I don't have a lift and won't get one, I just want something that might help smooth things out a little. I'm looking at some fairly inexpensive Gabriel's. They run around $20-30/shock.
Anyways, I figure that if I can get some nice D-Rated tires and some new shocks, I hope that will smooth out the ride a bit.
Any thoughts or advice on tires/shocks? This board has been great at answering my questions, and I do use the search function all the time, but your responses are more targeted.
