Once you go vertical the suspension feels weird.

Did you replace the Spring air in the tires with Summer air?

I mean, you DO change the tire air with each season right?

Mine is currently resting on the emergency brake cables.
Only a cheap jap truck would allow it to drag on the ground.

Many years ago, i told a pals wife, "had she changed the air in her tires lately"? Her husband had to turn his head, because he was about to crack up! "Well no, i hadn't", she said. I said, "well, it should be done fairly soon". Tires do need fresh air, from time to time, you know.

So, a few days later, she goes to her mechanic, and tells him, that she needs her tire air changed. The mechanic says, "who told you that"? She says her husbands pal, me. The mechanic says, "thank god you got here, as soon as he told you about putting fresh air in your tires". He played along, well.

A few weeks later, one of Flo's girlfriends hears what i told her, and tells her, she had been had! lol! Flo calls me up, reads me the riot act! "Deanie, how could you do such a thing"! I heard about that, for months after. lol! Flo's husband Michael, got a bit of it also, because he didn't tell her at the original time.

Simple pleasures in life, at times. lol!

Your wheelie bars are really short. I'm guessing that's your problem. Get the right length for your truck and see if that fixes it.

Suspension unloaded due to Rust. Throw some rocks in it to make up for the loss of weight due to rust. Kinda like a low tire.

Just zip tie that shock up. It wallows because the spring is bouncing, stop the spring bounce and you are good. I've found brick can work well for this purpose.
