Re: How do the 08 and up trucks ride? Bounce @ 45-50 MPH?
I completely agree on it's a truck. I don't think any of us are expecting or want for the truck feel to go away.
What we get is at a steady speed between 45-50 on smooth pavement it feels like the rearend of the truck is bouncing. On rough pavement where the suspension is working you won't feel it. On the trucks that do it the worse, you can see the rear corner of the bed hopping in the driver's mirror. If you get to either side of the speed they smooth out. I know the obvious answer is to avoid those speeds but it's hard to when you are daily driving in traffic.
How about this question, in a 6.4 truck at a steady 47 mph on smooth pavement running in traffic, is it smooth or does it bounce from the rearend?
Thanks again, a couple of us have made this our pet project and it's driving us nuts.
