harsh ride

i have 09 double cab
i am getting a very harch ride when hauling my atv over rough terian.
i have only 35000 km and my truck came with the 4 leaf pack.
i am not bottoming out on the stoppers but it feels like it.
when the bike is on the truck it is a least 2.5 inches away from the stoppers. when i jump up and down on the bumper it is solid, no movement whatsoever. it has to be the shocks i don't know.

I think some 5100's in the rear will help alot! I had same thing with some crappy Les Schwab shocks, and when I switched to 5100's it rode soo much smoother.

Sagging has to deal with your leafs. not shocks.

This.

You already have the 4 leaf pack... how heavy is the ATV?


Also, if you can jump up and down on the bumper with all your weight and get no movement, something is definitely hosed.

bike ways about 700 pounds. the truck does not look saged. it looks about level. like i said before there is no movement at all when i jump up and down on the bumper. it is solid. the rear suspension is pretty simple. not on the stops and nothing looks broken. it looks like the shocks can't compress enough in. is that possible?

Your shocks are not going to hold up your entire suspension. You say rough terrain...How does it ride over mild bumps and/or on the street?? Some combinations (heavy bed + big ruts/mounds) just aren't going to be comfortable....If you have good indications from every other driving regime than the "rough terrain"...I'd look at where you are driving over what is wrong with your truck.
