Hey all, new to the forum. I recently bought a new (to me) 2003 Silverado 1500HD. It rides very smooth for being a 3/4 ton chassis. I have noticed it likes to get a little bouncy when I go over a bump or hit a dip in the road. I do not want it to ride like a dump truck, but a little more stability would be nice. Leaning towards bilsteins. Thoughts and opinions?
I have read a couple of threads on here about a popping noise from the shocks, most are talking about the front shocks. So, my 2014 Silverado Crew cab 4x4 starting making what i can only describe as a "exhaust pipe bumping into the frame" noise, then it stopped. i was under the truck last night looking to see if i had the JL1 brake controller when i noticed the drivers side rear shock top mount bolt was gone and the shock was fully extended, laying on the spare, a quick jaunt to the parts store and 45 min later, no problem. now this morning i notice my noise is back, could this be a faulty shock? how could i "lose" a shock bolt?
I just got my 2014 Silverado with the z85 option not too long ago and while browsing the local CL I came across a set of brand new take off front struts from a 2017 Silverado 1500 Z71.
Would these be an upgrade to the stock z85 struts? Would it level out the truck at all?
Would there be any modification or swapping of other front end parts required?
Thanks for the help, I tried searching but couldn't find a thread that touched upon this.

I have a 2017 Four Wheel Drive Sierra with the Max Trailering Package and the 6.2L engine. I tow a 34' Airstream travel trailer (9,000 pounds loaded and about 1,000 pound tongue weight) and I get a good deal of porpoising on some washboard type roads. I have a Hensley Arrow Equalizer hitch with 1,000 pound spring bars. Also, I consider the truck under damped even when I'm not towing. I'm considering upgrading to the Bilstein 4600 series shocks F & R. Does anyone have a similar experience with this situation or the Bilstein 4600 shocks. I installed these shocks on my 1992 Suburban many years ago and I was very happy with the results.
