2014 Limited - rides rough, feel all bumps in steering

Hello All - I have a 2014 Limited, V8 4x4 with QL suspension (built in April.) I've had problems with a shimmy in the steering like others have, but that has I am lucky in that it seems to have gone away with a RF balance and alignment. What I can't seem to figure out is why I feel every single imperfection in the road through my steering column. It doesn't make an audible rattle, per say, it is just a VERY rough ride compared to my 2013, and I feel what can only be described as sloppy movement in the steering column over every bump. Anyone else feel this, or am I just the lucky one??? Thanks!

I think the most common cause is over inflated tires.

Re: 2014 Limited - rides rough, feel all bumps in steering

Thanks for the reply! That was one of the first things I checked when I got it. They are all still at 37 psi, so well under the tire max rating (44). It rides significantly worse than my 2013, and that one had cheap Goodyear tires on it (this 2014 has Mich.) I will likely bring it in to the dealership, but wanted to check to see if any others have had the issue. It is a pretty significant amount of "feedback" through the steering column over every minor road imperfection. I keep hearing how others rave about the smooth ride, and I am a bit jealous. It's a noiseless thumping feeling, like my old 2001 Escape that had broken sway bars on it!

Oh, I just noticed your post on going with the PSI on the door jam. I will check that and let some air out and see what that does. Thanks!
