    ADMIN EDIT: I moved this out of a 3 year old post that got bumped last week. The origin of the response is still quoted.

    Exactly what I have found. Suspension is stiffer than a preacher's (you know what). These heat-buckled roads down here in the south make for a bumpy ride to-and-from work. Any solution to this issue? Or should I just let some air out of the tires?

    I try to avoid crappy roads. It's not always a choice, but when it is I will go the long way to avoid beating up my truck. You could change the shocks, but you might get more body roll in the corners. I think it's a trade off, hard corners, or comfortable ride.

    The best solution I've come across was the qa1 shocks. I have the DJM 3/4 & I feel every damn bump there is but with those if I'm cruising just click um down to like a 4 or 3 setting and it's nice. For corners usually around a 8 or 10 depending on the corners. They hold up and have a lifetime warranty - I've had to have 1 rebuilt. Excellent customer service.
