Thread: Rough Ride

  1. #1

    Default Rough Ride

    I just purchased a 2007 Silverado ( New body style) .It has 20" wheels and had a little rough ride when I bought it, I installed lowering shackles to level out the truck for looks, but in doing so it made for an even rougher ride . What can I do to get a smoother ride ? use different shocks ? any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Billy

    What type of mods have been made to the truck. If it's a 2007 w/o any mods then I would go back to the dealer with a list of complaints. Sounds like there are some mods to the suspension, look there.
