    Have you checked your springs and spring mountings and suspension bushes???

    What is your suspension problem... What did you try to cure with new shocks?

    What has changed since you last had what you consider a smooth ride? Shocks obviously, but was it smooth before that? Tires maybe changed since ?

Many times a tire change or even an air pressure change is all you need. just for the heck of it. put your jeep up on jacks via the frame. one end at a time. once its up get under there and start jerking on stuff. i know it sounds like a shot in the dark but you would be surprised on what you might find. while under there check all of the rubber bushings to your leaf springs and front suspension. first though depending on your tires you might want to make a simple pressure adjustment.

good luck

I have a air ride suspension on my ford expedition 2001 and wonder if there's any way to manually air up the shocks to check for leaks .my ride along compressor is shot.

They eventually wear out. But if you try to replace parts, it will not fix the ongoing problem. You really need to change it to coil suspension. The problem with air ride is the bags will eventually go bad and it cost more to replace them than air bags in the steering wheel. I was lucky. My Expedition had already been changed over

These trucks dont drive to smooth they have a rough ride. it may be worse than normal,make sure tires are correct for truck and air in tire is correct , then have the suspension checked frt and rear make sure balljionts and control arms and there bushings are checked, sometimes the buskings go bad and make the ride loose and rough. hope this helps.

My 2004 Grand Cherokee is not riding as smooth as it did when I purchased it and that is why I specifically purchased this car. I had the rear shocks replaced once and that is when the rough ride started....


I would check the air mass sensor and the EGR valve. very common on these cars, dont think the suspension wil have anything to do with the rough idle.

You can clean the EGR and the air mass sensor sometimes and they are fine. let me know if you need more specifics about these parts.

Suspension system 2003 X Type

That all depends on if you have the comfort or the sport suspension. The sport is a bit stiffer, and the comfort is pretty floaty. Now, repair shops will tell you that you need to replace the shocks every 50,000 miles, however they should be good for at least 100,000 miles. But, how to tell. There are 3 items to check- how much "dive" does your front end have when you brake? If it is significant, then you might be due. The opposite is true when accelerating off the line. Finally, push down on the front and back end with your hands, and if it bounces straight up, then you should still be good on your shocks.

If you have rattles from the shocks, either the mounts or the shocks themselves might be bad. You want to replace the shocks in either case.

Note, that replacing the shocks on the X Type is extremely expensive.

Suspension and steerin wheel

It is difficult to just assess wut is causing the suspension knock. U will have to go under the vehicle or let someone who is experience about this do it. Go under the vehicle and check the entire suspension system, steering ends, rack ends, ball joionts, rubber bushings etc. Well u said u have changed ur shocks but no difference. As for the squeaks, this might be coiming from the universal joint from the steering column. Like I said they really have to be inspected.
