Why Is My Truck Bouncing Down Road
Posted 24 July 2009 - 03:32 PM
It does not feel speed dependant which to me eliminates the flat spot on the tires idea.. HOWEVER, it does kind of bump at low speed. Also, it is only in the back .
Perhaps I could rotate tires and see if it shifts to the front to eliminate that possibility? Hmmn, I think I'll try that and likely have them rebalanced and see what that does.
WOULD a lax 2 pc center driveshaft support bearing have anything to contribute to this?

I think I'd start with a trip to the tire balance shop. That will eleiminate (or show up) many possible causes. Without doing that first, you are just going to be guessing... and that can get frustrating and expensive
I agree. Thats going to be the best/cheapest way to start off. Will do.

absolutely... start with the tire shop... could be wheel balancing, tire separation, uneven tread wear .... get your tires checked!
after the tire's are checked out and dont fix it you might need new shock's,most last long enough to get out of warrenty .i like monroe reflex shock's .

I had sort of the same thing happen to my truck with a set of Hankook tires. Dont' every buy these P.O.S. tirese. At any rate, at speeds of 5-10 mph I could actually see the back corner of my box go up and down with the rotation of the tire.
Long story short, after 4 Hankook tires giving me the same result, the local tire shop here warrented the Hankooks out and I promptly replace them with Michelins.
BTW the only reason I was working with the Hankooks is cuz they were on the truck when I bought it. Man, that was a real head ache!!!!
