Rear end bounce after lift...

I have the rancho 4" inch lift and I originally had all shocks turned all the away up. And the rear end bounced horribly. So adjust the back shocks all the way down and was just wondering what others do. I have the rs9000 adjustable shocks... Just curious.

This is from hitting bumps... I run the no power setting. And this is even when I'm just coasting. Doesn't bounce as much after adjusting shocks. On acceleration it's ok until I hit a bump.

Well it didn't feel like axle wrap but traction bars are next on my list. I'll probably get some pro comp bars.

The adjustment is probably just a rebound setting. The higher, the more rebound. That's just what it sounds like at least. I really have no idea. I run stock.

When I was in to tuners years ago, the higher settings were always more bouncy than the lower settings.

I don't plan on dogging the truck at all. And now I have to listen to everything in the back of my truck clatter because of the bounce. Lol

Do you have an add a leaf or blocks in the back?

If you have blocks it's axle wrap. I have bars on my stock height truck and I could feel a difference going over bumps. Before the bars it seemed like the rear end would bounce over to one side if I was accelerating over a bump, now its planted solid.

Also, just to check, what tire pressure are you running? I know it wasn't a problem before, but that doesn't mean it can't be a problem now.

I don't even know. Just had the new tires and rims put on yesterday by discount tire. And I have 5 inch blocks in the rear. Rear end just seems like I have a lot of spring to it. And it happens even if I just coast over a bump. Even at really low speeds.

It could be a combination of several things then.

Does the bounce go away when you set the shocks to their lowest setting?
Make sure the air pressure isn't too high. This would basically make your tires much more bounce-happy once they are compressed.
