Bouncy ride in front of vehicle...why?

I've been getting a very bouncy ride from the front end of my SRT and not sure why. I have had the RM Mid level drop on for over a year so I don't think thats the issue. If anyone else has had this issue, any help would be appreciated!

Re: Bouncy ride in front of vehicle...why?

No direct experience here but wanted to throw this out. Maybe the shock mounted solenoid is acting up. Also, maybe it's just a bad shock. Try the corner bounce test. In this case with ADS have it running and firmly press down on a corner (be careful not to dent the aluminum hood with your palms/weight). It should compress, bounce back up past neutral and then go a tad down below neutral but then settle right into neutral position. If it continues to wallow/bounce then the shock is likely bad. Any excessive wetness around shock tube? Another sign.
