So i am sick of my truck riding like shit. Truck just seems loose. Brought it to the shop. They checked it over and said the front end is tight. I have done left upper ball joint inner tie rods and all new shocks Monro mono tube shocks.Also changed the steering shaft. The shocks suck i am buying new ones. I am going to change the idler arm and Pittman arm when i do the new shocks. My question is? Has any one done the poly bushing up grade to the whole front suspension? How hard is it and did it tighten up the truck? My truck has 122k on it and I am sure the bushings have seen there better days. Any Input would be great.

stock height?

 

Yes stock height and stock 20 inch wheels. Truck sat higher in the front slightly when i got it so about 3 months ago i lowered it down half an inch to sit level i doubt that would be my problem since it rod fine after. Also i have checked the torsion bar mounts and they seem to be fine.

Didn't get an alignment?

My truck runs smoother on 22's with Belltech Street Performance shocks than on 20's w a thicker tire and stock shocks. You'd assume the opposite after a drop but that was the case for me.

Well i am ordering the shocks today then the idler arm and Pittman arm then alignment. Ill get back to you guys. Also the tires are in good shape. But they are winters.

This may sound pathetic, but when have you had the truck last lubed up? I know when I go in and have service, and come back out and the truck is lubed up it drives alot tighter, sticks to the road alot more and can corner better. Call me crazy but I can notice these small little differences.
