I noticed at chehalis i was sitting on the bump stops but when i got back here it was fine again.Today in the snow it is on the stops again.The shop just insatlled brand new shocks 2 months ago.Could there have been a mix up in shipping and instead of shocks they sent out penis's? Why does it shrink in the cold?:confused:

It was before the snow on top and it is only the front drivers side.I think its the shock that is the problem.

shocks shouldent afect your ride hight, they just slow down spring osolations,

It drops almost 2 inchs and if the bump stop wasnt there it might even go farther.

:confused: :confused: weird, you wouldnet think the temp would have that mutch afect on your springs, but they are what holds the truck up, did you use new ones or old ones when you did the ifs swap? maybe ther just realy sacked unless you broke something:confused: :confused:

all the wet snow builds up underneth from drivin makin it heavy,then it falls off on the road and walla,the truck is lighter!!!!just my 2 cents

I doubt it's your springs, more likley the shock is seizing up or the rebound valving is sticking shut, causing the shock to hydraulic in the compressed position. Unbolt one end of it when it happens again, or swap them side for side and see what happens. If anything, springs get stiffer in the cold, not softer.

Dont forget though this time it happened as it was parked in the driveway.It was parked for a full day before the snow even.The first time it moved was this morning on the way to work.

So the thing just sags on its own? That's messed up! I'd swap the front shocks side for side anyway just to rule them out. Lot easier to change those.
