At a certain point in a truck/car's life, the gas that is in the shocks, or the fluid, starts to degrade, or seep away, at which point it is horrendously ineffective at cushioning out those potholes before they reach your rump. It sounds like shock replacement time.

What to do for 2003 Denali air bag, service ride control light flashing


I replaced my shocks with better quality... And now my Service Ride Control is also on. The mechanic said the truck is looking for the electronic switch on the previous shocks. There is a switch they can install to over ride the warning. Don't know if you had new shocks installed, but thought I would mention it.

My 2005 nissan altima 2.5 has a very rough ride... I feel every bump and pothole in the front end....I have just over 90k miles.... the only other issue I have had with the car is the crankshaft sensor at...


This rough ride is going to be shocks, and struts. It most likely will not be motor mounts. Price for shocks and struts , with parts and labor only on front could run around 500 bucks, if taken to any where but the dealer. Sense your car is front wheel drive have breaks and steering arms checked at same time. Thanks mike

I would check your tire pressure, if your running 60 psi it's going to be a bumpy ride, lower the air pressure to 35 psi and see if it makes a differance, does the truck move up and down when you jump on the bumpers or is it stiff ?

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

My car drops in the back at night . but lifts back up when the car is started


sounds like bad air shocks, or a leaking line, most of the time its the shock , they get rusted and dont seal that good anymore and the air slowly leaks out.
