Thread: Body roll....
11-17-2010, 01:18 AM #1
i have body roll that i feel is excessive. when i hit the curb pulling in to my drive way 1-2 mph the truck rocks side to side 2-4 times befor coming to a rest. also when im driving and i turn a corner and i jerk the wheel a lil bit the truck makes it look like im spazzing out behind the wheel! hahaha. i was wondering if its the shocks, springs, or need a rear sway bar? i did replace the front shocks with cheapest auto zone set. i dont put chity stuff on my truck! i was just trying to see if this would solve the problem befor i threw some $$$$ name brand stuff in there!
i have a 2006 chevy silverado ext cab 2wd with 110,000 miles, stock suspension and stock rims and tires. i also have a fiberglass tonneau cover, aluminum toolbox in the bed with maybe 40-50lbs of stuff. (just so u know whats been added to the truck weight wise)

Hey Jason, I think you're just "spazzin" out when you're drivin ha ha ha..
Seriously I think it's your shocks. Shocks are exactly what is suppose to counteract the springs & body bounce in these situations. I don't think putting an anti-sway bar on the rear would be your answer because there are millions of trucks without rear s bars that do not do this. See if Autozone will allow you to return the cheapo shocks & use the refund $$ to buy good shocks.1988 Chevy C-3500 2wd (no pic)

X3 with '99Heartbeat about the Edelbrock IAS's. I have the non-reservoir and the dual remote reservoir on my lifted '05 Z-71 and they work great in the corners. Also I'd check the front swaybar bushing because of age and miles.
