If the rough road is the issue new shocks will make the truck ride even stiffer, if you must replace the shocks because of fluid leaks then stick with the factory shocks from your local Ford dealer, they are the exact right one for your truck. this is a SUV and by nature they are stiff riding,

How can i tell if my 09 Silverado 4x4 1500 has the electronic shock system? No lifts.. Just basic.. not heavy duty.. Im A Female and dont know anything about my truck.


If you can see wires going to top of shocks you might. If there are no switches in passenger compartment , proably not. The best way to get all your questions answered at once and learn more about your vehicle is to ask chevrolet if they can decode your vin # and print it out for you

97 lincoln town car lost that smooth ride, every bump now feels real stiff.


As long as the Air ride springs are keeping the tail end up, then it is most likely time for new shock absorbers. I have found that the best ride is from the oem motorcraft brand. They can cost double that of an aftermarket brand but they last a good while.

Rear air ride system is not working , seems there are no aftermarket non air ride shocks available , suggest alternative non air ride shock for this year ?


I hate to break the news to you but there are not any available. If the car needs shocks you have to get the air ride one from a dealer parts department.

The good news is....the shocks are probably not your problem...there are valves and sensors, as well as tubing and a pump...any of which could be the problem.

Noisy suspension on 97 Honda civic


Yes, you need a stiffer shock. Your probably bottoming out. You'll need the camber and alignment checked after you stiffen it. The ride will not be so pleasant so slow down for bumps.

Infiniti FX 35 stiff ride


The FX is a bouncy car, but it's necessary to accommodate it's good performance. You can try some aftermarket air shocks, or check into different tires. That should help.
