    Default Rear suspension bounce

    Hi All,
    Iím not happy with the rear suspension on my truck (See my sig). Sure at normal speeds on smooth roads the rear suspension works fine with or without a load in the bed. Up the speeds some what and aggression and the rear can bounce around too much on exits, bends, etc depending on the road conditions. So what is it about the suspension that is causing this?
    Is it the stiff springs, too much shock rebound, etc???

    Yeah I guess that's possible. Never know how much weight the previous owner loaded up in the bed. But it feels fine most of the times.

    Leaf Springs might be shot, this causes bouncing when going around a bend with a pot hole, my truck bounces around from left to right, and i need new leaf springs.
