Bouncy ride

Bouncy riderly 99 with a 8" fabtech lift on 38x15.50. This truck is real bouncy in the back. It also has dual shocks in the rear. Is there anything I can do to make it less bouncy.

its just the nature of the lift, too much air in the tires? dual shocks in the rear doesn't help with the ride at all

no the dual shocks are probably adding insult to injury.

well you can run dual shocks but a lot of people put two standard valved shocks together and that's way to much. You can run dual shocks but they need to be specifically valved to run as a pair.

I did not put this lift on but I no the guy who did and it was a whole kit from fabtech. I even called fabtech and they said they are the right shocks. I don't want to lower my truck but I sure wish it was just a lil smoother.

well then its the lift, but taking one of the shocks off should help with the ride

Either go to one shock, or buy a fiberglas topper. I have 6" Pro-Comp springs and the weight of my old topper helped smooth out the ride.

I would like to go to one shock but not sure how to get the top of the shock off. It looks like I will have to remove the shock holder. It is one from fabtech. Looks like I might have to remove the bed to get to it

look into a 7100 series bilstein or a like from fox, get with fabtech and have them valved accordingly. fabtech is relatively stiff, therefore they perform really good offraod under high weight and travel conditions.
