Possibly a bad strut.more likely it's a control arm bushing,a tie-rod end,or steering rack bushing.

When driving my truck and i hit a bump in the road. The truck will jump around on the road until it straightens out again. If I'm in a turn and I hit a bump the truck will jump around until stability.


Hey Alonzo,
One of three things,
1. Your suspension is WAY TOO STIFF!!! ..most likely
2. ALL of your shocks are frozen, which makes it seem like riding in a buckboard wagon
3. The suspension is way TOO soft.. (not likely)

You need to change your STRUTS, depending on your Springs, you may need to change them too if you want a Smoother Ride

My 2004 montana seems to have a bad shock in the rear. It vibrates after 55mph and feels like it jumps if you hit a pothole. Is this what it is?


this is what bad shocks do when they are worn out.have the rear suspension checked out first just in case something in the back is bad.if all okay then replace both rear shocks/struts.they act like this because there is no restriction in the hydraulic portion of the shock to keep the wheels on the road when hitting bumps.

Yoy can jump the truck off, but wile you are


It is probably a loose ground wire. If it only does it while hitting bump, then there is a loose wire somewhere. It may be loose fuse but probably loose wire or solder joint going to dash control board

Rear suspension question


it sounds like upper strut mounts or the struts themselves need to be replaced try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
