Question about 2004 Jeep Liberty

Ride not as smooth

I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty with 53,000 miles. I just replaced the tires with the hope of the smoothness of the ride improving. It did not. Should the shocks need replaced this early?

No, The shocks should last longer than that.Did you have a better ride before.The liberty has a short wheelbase which makes it have bumpy rocking ride.

Tire noise on mercury mariner so so loud, is there a better tire than the continental contitrac 235x70?

Tires offer a number of trade-offs. Loud tires provide superior tread wear and a harsher ride, are loud. Soft tires provide a smooth ride, quiet operation and usually fewer miles.

Please go see your Goodyear or Firestone or Continental (or other major brand) tire professional and discuss your concerns with him or her to find the best tire for your application and driving style.

I find the impact harshness at low speed (35mph) on our terrible local roads to be intolerable. What can I do to reduce it?

You can lower the tire pressure in your tires by about 4 lbs. This will help your ride but you may experience outer edge tire wear. The Porsche Cayman has a very stiff suspension and is never going to ride smooth no matter what you do. After all this is a full blown sports car. Sports cars do not ride smooth. You pay a penalty for great handling like your Porsche has. If you have the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) on your car set it for comfort. Other than the tire pressure and possible a different set of tires there is nothing you can do to improve ride comfort.

I have a toyota corolla 2001 and I am wondering if a P17570r14 would have a smoother ride than a p17565r14?

the 70 has a higher aspect ratio so it will ride smoother becasue it is taller between the wheel and the ground.

How can i improve the ride (suspension) on the ford trekker

Fit softer shock absorbers if you want a softer ride, or if it rolls around too much, have a tortion bar fitted.
Changing springs to a performance type will also affect things, but talk to the manufacturers before selection.
Fitting different tyres will also affect handling and ride.

2004 Vue--pulls to one side when starting from a stop light. When stopping it shakes quite noticeably. Previous smooth ride is now not very comfortable. Is it brakes, tires, shocks?

sounds like you have a bad tire on the front look for a buldge in the tire or tire seperation. be careful this tire could blow and cause a major problem also check the lugnuts could be loose.

My 98 Subaru Impreza had a tire blow out. Now the tire shop wants to replace all 4 tires. Is this necessary? I could understand 2 but not 4. Called the Subaru Service Department and they said a single...

you need to change all the 4 tyres since because you have got a car for a smooth ride if u just change only 2 or 1 u wont be having a smooth ride which ll make life risk also so my advice is better change all the 4 tyres.
