Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

1 Answer

2004 Chev 1500 Suspension bounce/jiggle

When coming to a stop or going over smal bumps, there is a few little bounces or jiggles before he truck comes to a stop or rest.

There is about 75,000 on the truck, it's the Z71 package and I replaced the shocks with Bilstiens at about 70,000. The new shocks made a little difference but that last little bouncing is still there.

Any thoughts,

DL

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.

How can I get stuck valet key out of the ignition switch?


Have you tried turning the steering wheel back & forth?Even if its locked,you can still move it 1-2" which is usually enough to get the ignition key out.You can also try to squirt some graphite down into the ignition key lock cylinder, between the ignition key and lock cylinder key slot.Graphite is a powdered metal lubricant that comes in a small tube or plastic container. You can also try turning the key on,putting the transmission in neutral, rocking the car a little,put it back in park then try extracting the key.

Symptoms of worn rear shock absorber


To test if your shocks are worn, go to each corner of your vehicle, put two hands on the car, and now pump the corner down hard a few times rapidly, trying to get it to bounce, than quickly let go!, If the car only bounces one or two or three times and stops, they are fine, If any one corner bounces more than two or three times and keeps on bouncing like 5 or 6 times, it's a worn shock. Worn shocks can make it feel like your driving a big ol' loose boat across the road, even in a small vehicle with movement both side to side and up and down, so can worn or loose body bushings, worn suspension parts, under-inflated or broken in or worn out and softened tires. If your ride height seems low it could be worn springs, Shocks are cheap and easy to change, especially the rears. Springs aren't cheap and can be a pain to change on some front ends. Good luck!

When I hit a bump I bounce and bounce and bounce.


If the bouncing is in the front it is probably a strut.
If the bouncing is in the rear it is probably a shock
look for the shock to be oily indicating the shock is bad. But
usually if the car is bouncing two or three time after hitting a bump
the shock has either broken or come completely loose.

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me


I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

I have an 2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Baurer, Check Air Suspension light is on. The suspension is not working at all truck rides very low and bounces every time a bump is hit, what could be wrong?


Any part of the air ride suspension system could have failed.
I would replace the air suspension, with a conversion, such as strutmaster or similar product,other wise you have to diagnose your current system and repair.

When I turn on my headlights they don't always come on. If I open the hood and jiggle the wire they'll come on. But once I'm driving and if I hit even a little bump, they turn back off.


Look at the connection, where you jiggle the wire's, that where the problem is at, just a bad connection, clean and make a better connection.

Buckling Noise at rear of car (06 Touareg)


if possible have someone stand on the bumper and bounce. while you are under with a flashlight and try topinpoint the noise. if no noise while bouncing, the trouble is in the drive line not suspension. this noise could be something as simple as a seized shock bushing not or a u-joint. maybe the brake cable rubbing somewhere. good luck
