Bouncy and Floaty feeling on bumpy windy roads - how to fix?
Hi, first off let me say thanks to this forum, you have helped me as a lurker many times!!
I have an 06 with just over 100k miles, with the 4.7. It's getting downright scary to drive the thing over bumpy roads, especially if there's any sort of curves involved.
By searching this forum, I have determined that my front struts are a life-of-vehicle product, and unless there are obvious signs of failure, they should be ok. Tell me if I'm wrong here. Since there are no obvious signs of failure, I'm going to focus elsewhere.
I've gathered that replacing the rear shocks and front sway bar bushings is the way to go.
But further reading tells me that mixing and matching the fronts and rear shocks will cause other problems as they will be out of balance. Assuming the rears are just along for the ride at this point, is it still a possibility I will make things worse by replacing them? Do I have to do all 4 at the same time for this reason, even if the fronts are good?
Is there anything else I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance.
