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 ?

Atcopeland1,

Due to the short wheel base of the truck and the more rugged suspension the car will ride rough. In terms of rough feeling the bumps you go over. If the shocks/struts are bad the car will feel more of a "bouncy" or "floating" ride. I would lean towards the vehicle is operating how it is suppose to.

You might want to check the tire pressure too. Although over inflation wont make the car ride substantially rougher, it can certainly add to the rough ride.

Good luck

You're correct friend, on replacing with heavier duty shocks. That would be a plus for your driving experience. The short wheelbase on these "Blazer" style vehicles does make for a rough ride.

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.

Rough ride


Sounds like the shocks are bad. If you inspect the shocks, you may see leakage. This is an indication that you have a bad shock absorber. Not knowing how long you've owned the car, have no idea the last time the shocks were replaced but this would be the first place I'd look. Good luck and write back with any questions or concerns.
