Replace the shocks that should cure the problem, use gas filled heavy duty, Monroe is my choice.

Car sways when I hit a bump


Sounds like shocks are worn out. Test by bouncing car by hand. If it continues to bounce after you stop they are bad. It is best to replace front and rear both. Also many front wheel drive cars have struts on front instead of shocks. If you have a garage fix it, tell them the symptoms, so they can properly diagnose.

Rocks sideways when driving, feel like you are on a boat


Have the shocks/struts ever been replaced? The rocking is normally caused by worn out shocks and/or sway bar bushings. When the shocks go, you normally will experience a rollercoaster type up and down motion when you hit bumps (the springs are bouncing and the shocks are not dampening/rebounding properly). If you do not have this up and down rocking, but just sideways, check your front and rear sway bar bushings for wear or damage to where they connect to the frame. If the mount has broken or come loose, it will not prevent the sideways sway. You should also see a sideways lean going around corners.

Sounds to me like you need a set of sway bar links replaced.It also may be the sway bar bushingsYou may want to check the front brakes as well,you could have a slider bolt missing.

You most likely need new struts and shocks. especially in the rear. It is common. If it feels like this all the time including driving straight, then check that sway bar an ends aren't broken.

Dodge 1500 front end problem


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

Suburban front tire squeek


squeaks in the front end can be any one of the suspension components....however with gm trucks it has been my experience that its probably a ball joint.........GET IT CHECKED!!!!!!!.......if the ball joint breaks the wheel will flop in the wheel well and can cause severe damage to your other suspension components as well as body damage.(can be very expensive) if you are traveling at a fast speed you may lose control and possibly crash! But most of the time a bad ball joint will break when you are going into a driveway or parking lot.
hope this helps........Good Luck!

2004 Chev 1500 Suspension bounce/jiggle


There is a Service Bullitem out for that year (2wd) because the front frame cross member needs shims. I had it done to my crew cab 1500 a couple years ago, but the noise is back now :/
I'll look for the SB# a bit later. Good luck.... should still be covered, I think.
