After a 250 mile road trip in the escarado today, I was wondering if my rough ride is normal?

I have the KP 4 link and canti with air lift bags, and the shocks that came from KP. Every time i hit a bump in the road the whole truck shifted side ways? Is this normal? There wasn't much bounce to it though. So i think the shocks are still good?

mines kinda the same way, it seems like its just the rear because theres no weight back there. im running the same 6link and the kp shocks. ill be upgrading to better shocks real soon though, so hopefully it corrects it

Are you running a watts link or panhard bar? Watts link will help with the shifting.

the 6-link to me rides floaty as hell. On the interstate I thought i was on a boat.

But it is perfect around town IMO.
stock kp or aftermarket shocks?

i have a soft ride out of mine as well, but it is a comfortable ride. I'd like to switch out the rear shocks and change the 'bags over to slams..that should firm it up a bit.

i run a six link with slams and adjustable shocks. rides good with an empty bed. rides perfect imo with some weight in the bed. switching over to the different shocks helped out alot.

Maybe I'll try some different shocks. Because the was it is now if you hit a bump in the road or a pot hole it throws you all over the place, almost into the other lane.
