Question about 2002 Isuzu Axiom

Open Question

Rough Ride of 2002 Isuzu Axiom

Our '02 Axiom has the electronic suspension of Sport Mode or Highway mode. One mode is bouncy and the other is stiff, either way, it makes for a stiff neck after a while. Does anyone know if there is a aftermarket shock that can replace the OEM electronic version with a more comfortable ride? I also have a '99 Trooper and the ride is a dream! Don't know why they made it so different! Can I use non-electronic shocks on this vehicle, say a Trooper shock?

    I have the same complaint. The ride in the 02' Axiom is bad. Sport suspension is soo stiff and feels like you are off roading on smooth streets, and the regular suspension is soo bouncy every bum feels like a speed bump. Can anybody help with this suspension problem?

SOURCE: suspension bouncy

i am not familiar with the mercedes suspension but your problem is caused by bad shocks .. not sure if they are seperate from the hydraulic system .. if they are then thats what you need .. if the shocks are part of the hydraulic system (that would be some neat engineering) .. then there is likely a valve that acts like a shock absorber in that system .. it sounds like the suspension system is working good .. its just the shock absorber system that is causing the trouble ..

I would check your tire pressure, if your running 60 psi it's going to be a bumpy ride, lower the air pressure to 35 psi and see if it makes a differance, does the truck move up and down when you jump on the bumpers or is it stiff ?

Infiniti FX 35 stiff ride


The FX is a bouncy car, but it's necessary to accommodate it's good performance. You can try some aftermarket air shocks, or check into different tires. That should help.
