Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

Rough ride on 1999 ford explorer 4x4 XLT

On my 99 ford explorer 4x4 XLT the ride is really hard and rough over normal road conditions. In other words it seem as if the new shocks that were installed recently are not absorbing any of the bumps and holes in the road, and I dont remember it being that way when I got it in 2003. Wondering if this is just how it rides or if there is a problem.
P.S. it doesn't have air ride.

If it was me i would check the shock mount at the top to make sure they are in good shape and checkout the tires to make sure you do not have a bad one or two and also check the stabilizer bar to make the bushings are not bad

There is a clicking noise when the heat or air is on and the rpms rev about 200 - 300 rpms... It kinda rhythmic... Click, rev, pause for a few seconds, click, rev, pause... It's a 99 explorer xlt


This is normal. It takes power to run your heat / air. The click is the compressor clicking on or off. Is AC working normally when you use it? Is the freon low?
