View Full Version : "Shuddering" over bumps...

I searched (isn't it pitiful that so many people feel the need to open their questions like that??) but found nothing to answer this:

When I go over higher speed bumps (like rumble strips for example) my rear continues to "shudder" for a second or two. I'm assuming my rear shocks are gone. I've done the bounce test and got no extra bounce at all. I just can't think of anything else it might be. Anyone else suffer this? If so, did you replace the shocks and did it fix it?

Your wheel alignment might be off. I remeber on my dad's 2001 chevy silverodo, it used to do the same thing. You would hit a bump in the road going about 60mph and the whole truck would go into this shake from side to side. We took it to the garage and got it re-aligned. That fixed the problem.
