90 Ford F150 lately it seems like it's riding a rougher, but I don't bounce. Could my shocks be wearing out, or something else. How do I tell? Thanks

If the Shock are even worn Slightly, They will make the Ride Pretty Rough on Trucks. I used to work at the Monroe Shock Factory.

I have a 2001 Ford explorer xls. When going over a bumpy road it will sometimes keep bouncing. Is this an indication that my shocks are bad??


The job of shock absorbers is to do just that..absorb the bumps. If your vehicle's shocks wear out, or the gas charge or oil leaks out, they no longer have the ability to perform to their fullest, and what you'll get is that bouncy feeling going over bumps, and after you've gone over them it will continue to bounce.
There is an easy test you can do to confirm bad shocks and/or struts on any vehicle. With your hands, push down on the front or rear of the vehicle and get it bouncing. When you let go, the car should bounce no more than one complete up and down cycle. Any more than this and your shocks and struts are bad and in need of replacement.

Yes a worn out or broken shock will cause tire wear. But most likely you have a suspension problem. Need to check for play in upper & lower ball joints & inner & outer tirods.

Speedometer bounces while driving


your spedo cable is probably just loose which can be fixed by tightening or replaceing. Might as well go ahead and replace it since its a 14 year old truck and its the more sure fire way to fix the bounce.

When driving down the road it bounces


Sounds like worn or blown struts - they control the oscillation of the car on rougher roads.
