-Need some help for a softer ride!
So, if you see the pic in my sig and the parts in it, you can imagine it's not the smoothest riding rig out there.
It's getting old though...
I'm looking for ideas on how to smooth out the ride a bit while still keeping the tires and lift. Right now I have Baja ATZ's on it (38x15.50).
Here's my thoughts, please chime in with your own:
1-Lower the air pressure significantly. How much? What's a safe, low amount? Will this help or only cause more problems?
2-New shocks? I've taken the shocks off before when I painted them to match the flames on the truck and even with all eight of them off, the truck didn't "sit down" but maybe a 1/8th of an inch. Therefore I'm wondering if they really do a dam thing at all!
3-New, softer springs? I understand that the springs actually help HOLD UP the truck on the lift so if I get softer springs, will it start sagging down a bit too much?
Either way, I'm open for ideas as again, it's starting to get really old feeling every single bump, cigarette, crack and crevice in the road!
