Did you fit aftermarket shocks ? They could be adjustable for ride firmness and set at sport setting

Rear end ratio


Being that it is a one ton I would expect it to ride rough. It is made for hauling a heavy load. If you want to improve ride quality you will loose hauling capacity unless you spend the money for an air ride suspension system.

Was told i had a leak in my rear shock and yes it rides a bit rough is that the problem


Shocks/struts are key to keeping your ride in your vehicle as smooth as it can be with the bumps and dips in the road.

Is it plausible this is your problem? Yes.

Is this your problem? I don't know without looking at the vehicle itself.

But, if you notice your vehicle riding rough AND did not state this to the mechanic diagnosing your vehicle and they suggest replacement of the rear shocks, it doesn't seem someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes in this situation.

Riding rough sounds like shocks.. but I dont think gran am has shocks.. could it be the moter mount that would make it ride rough and when you turn the stering wheel back and forth while driving it sways.


All cars have shocks and/or struts. Grand am has front struts and either rear struts or shocks. When these are worn, the ride would be rough. If a motor mount was bad, you may feel rocking or visually see the motor wiggle back and forth when you press and release the accelerator pedal. Motor mounts won't affect handling. Either shocks/struts, sway bar, stabalizer bar or links are the common cause

Rough riding dakota


I would think, most likely the shocks are bad. The springs could be weak, but I would think it would sit a bit low. I'd check the stabilizer links. The vibration could be a bad universal joint in the driveshaft. I'd replace the shocks first.

Montero Sport clunks when I hit a bump


The front[or rear] sway bars have links in them that are rubber mounted,it sounds like one of the sway bar links is broken,or one of the sway bar bushings is missing.Find the sway bar and have a close look at the mounts to see if the problem lies here.

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....


Hi

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.

Dan
