Thanks for having me on this forum...
I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado Z71. I recently had it leveled out. I installed new skyjacker shocks to get a smoother ride. I think I'm beyond that. My ride is extremely rough. Enough to make my stereo come lose. Is there any way I can smooth this riding quake down? I thought about bushing kits....any suggestions?

I had 300lbs in the back of my 04, 2500 silverado the other day. The truck road better than normal. Any thoughts about putting a heavier bumper on the back to give me a smoother ride and still keeping the bed free? Any idea on what the weight of the stock bumper is?

Cannot resolve rough ride problems. Tried special ride shackles but no help. Though about removing helper leaf. Running monroe reflex shocks. Any good suggestions would help besides adding any weight to the rear end for that kills mileage. Also though of a 4 link

ran edlebrocks then switched to bilstein HD and the ride was awesome. Not quite like a caddy but way better than edlebrock or the stock shocks. I also ran the royal velvet shackles and had Michelin LTX M/S tires

It will ride a little stiffer. It does not bother me but my wife likes the car feel to it without the lift. She is a little picky. You can get 3 inches out of the lift keys but you should only go 2 inches to keep a good ride ( 2 inches will be with the bolts all the way out (down on the block). You can get them on ebay for around $60. They are not hard to put in with a couple of 5 ton pullers. Use two pullers to crank the new key into place and then take the one off that is in the way of the key block and put the block in. Do not put your fingers in the hole. If the puller gives you will have one less finger. Drive it around and if you dont like it put the old ones back in. If you like it go get the alignment. If you use spray paint to mark the bolts on the old keys before you take them out you can put them back in and not need to re-align it.
