Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2WD

1 Answer

Unsteady Ride I have a 2006 2500HD longbed p/u truck and I have a very rough ride especially between 45/55 mph. It feels almost like a bounce. I routinely have the tires balanced and rotated and I just picked it up from the dealership and they say there are no bent rims and it may be defective tires. They are fairly new tires and GoodYear 10 ply. I'm stumped. ???

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 ?

My 2002 Jeep GC Limited bounces and rolls. You can hear what sounds like knocking when it bounces over bumps. Almost like there is metal on metal. I just replaced all four shocks with very little...


Mechanic seems rather odd considering it is the function of a mechanic to discover what is wrong. If owners knew what was wrong with their vehicles there wouldn't be much point in mechanics serving a four year apprenticeship learning the core skills and taking loads of exams. I was in training for seven years and I think I managed to scratch the surface but very little more than that.

If it sounds like metal-to-metal contact, it probably is though the noise doesn't necessarily account for the poor ride. You have described symptoms that seem like a car with worn shock absorbers...
It is worth noting not all shock absorbers are the same. I once fitted Gabriel brand shocks to a car and the resulting ride was so teeth-rattlingly hard it made the former ride seem luxurious by comparison.

It is also worth noting that an unwise type mix can cause a most uncomfortable ride that one correspondent described as a sideways bounce.
Such things would not account for the knocking noises.

Modern vehicles tend not to be fitted with suspension bump stops but instead are fitted with similar hard foam components that act as auxilliary springs, often fitted on the piston rods of struts and semi-struts. These components are soon damaged if the car is driven with dud shocks, is heavily loaded or driven hard over rough ground.

Speculation is pointless. In reality the pathway to a diagnosis is for an experienced person to go for a drive and then take a look underneath.

We just bought a 2004 Toyota sienna XLE on 11/20. It seems to have a very bumpy ride especially on the interstate. I took it to the toyota dealer and was told the struts/shocks are fine. It just seems...


If it has the factory original struts, they probably need replacing. When driving over paved surfaces, the struts only move up and down a few inches. that causes the strut to wear out or become soft in that short travel area. What most people do when they check a strut or shock for wear is to bounce the vehicle up and down as hard as they can. This puts movement into an area of the strut that hasn't seen any wear, so it feels like it is in good shape. 77,000 miles is a lot for a strut or shock. I would have them replaced. Get a quality strut. Don't go for the economy strut. You will be disappointed in the ride quality. It would be a good idea to have the ball joints checked for wear. A little movement in worn ball joints can make for a very rough ride.

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.

Rear shock replacements on '03 G. Cherokee results in "firm" ride. If shocks needs to be replaced, please advise.


Its likely that you got so used to the soft ride you had with old worn shocks that the new ones feel strange. You could buy a more inexpensive shock to restore that "old" feeling, but I don't think you really want that. One thing you should do though is to make sure by having a couple of people bounce the rear, that the shocks are not binding or are too long and bottoming out part way through the suspension travel. There is a part # stamped into the bottom of the shock just above the weld ...double check that part number to make sure you have the correct ones. Also check the standing height of the back end (compare the height of yours with others you find in parking lots...I have a 93, which measures 171/2" from center of rear wheel hub to edge of wheel flair.)
If standing height is too low, shocks are not working at the center of travel but at the lower part. (likely you would have noticed this more with the old shocks though). Additionally, there are adjustable shocks available that you can "tune" to your comfort level...they usually have three settings ...you choose the one that suits you best.
Hope something I said will give you a cure or an understandable reason for what you are feeling.
Don't forget though that a Jeep is essentially a small truck, as such, it's going to ride like one!
