How about the shocks and possible hugh air pressure in tires? When you push down on front end the body should return without bouncing. Hard tire won't absorb road shock. Give those two a look at.. good luck

Nissan problem

This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

Only when the truck bed is loaded 97' dodge ram 1500 bounces and wobbles while driving

I had the same problem with my 98 Dodge and It turned out to be a faulty Steering shock dampner on the front end? Check your front end for any loose tie-rod ends, Track bar, Ball joints Ect. Also check and see if there is a shock absorber installed on your front end? If not you can get one for it at any parts stores but Moog makes a good solid after market kit that you can get at any NAPA Auto parts. Good luck.

My vitz 1999 model runs fine on a smooth road but when driving on a bumpy road the car is so unstable goes up and down so much as if wanting to overturn

bounce a corner of the car to see if you have more than a bounce and a rebound,if more, then fit new shockers,always in pairs,front and rear.

Hello I hav a 2001 dodge durango that is saying its out of fuel. We put fuel in it, changed the fuel pump, nothing has worked. It reads a code "no BU5". does anyone have any suggestions as to what the...

It could be a stuck floater in the tank, or a bad fuel gage. Most linley it's a stuck flaoter. The tank has to be removed in order to fix. It sounds dumb bt works sometimes. With aprox. Half a tank bounce the vehicle or go on a bumpy road which will make the back end bounce. It might help it unjam itself. Also try rocking it side to side
