I am finding it to be rougher ride than stock. ( i knew it would be but dang) I call it a bounce house. Would anyone be able to tell me how and what to do to soften the ride?
I also added a heavy duty Steering Stabilizer bar and track bar to help the play it has in the wheel. But this seemed to not do anything.
Please help me.
Do you know what kind of lift it has? Different kind of lifts have different trade offs. Some of the least expensive kits just put stiffer/longer springs/shocks in. That could definitely explain some of the "bounce house" behavior you are seeing. Based on my limited experience with lifts, there definitely is some "you get what you pay for" factor. Suspension geometry is very important when it comes to overall on road manners, while you can get the same altitude cheaper it often comes with it's own cost.
