rear suspension 2500hd upgrade


Recommended Posts

first we had a k1500 ext. cab 1995, and we traded it in for a k2500 crewcab 2003.

going from ext. to a crew is a world of difference, but the ride in the back, is hard.

is there somekind of airride supension, so you can eliminate a few leafs on the rear leaf spring setup, and put an air ride supension on, so the ride becomes more smoother, and adding a sway bar for better control with the air ride suspension?

 

can't believe that i am the only one experiencing this, so there must be a package for sale somewhere

A 2500HD is intended for serious hauling, and it will ride like a truck. Taking out springs will destroy it's load carrying ability, and adding air bags will make it even stiffer.

 

You want smooth ride, get a girly 1500 truck.

put a couple hundred pounds in the bed (about 300 is good). It puts a little flex into the springs and and makes the rear end less susceptable to bumps in the road (the rear doesn't bounce freely).

 

also, like was just posted, drop the rear pressure a few. (others have said go as low as 55).

 

works for me.

 

bummed.

well, we are not allowed to throw more in the back that 600lb (overseas in teh netherlands).

the front suspension and while driving or sitting in front it drives good, but when you are in the back, it's rough as hell, not to mention that bad roads make it loose contact with the road everyonce in a while

 

will try to adjust the tire pressure alittle bit
