Rear end slams hard over speed bumps with AAL

If I go over speed bumps with any speed, my rear end comes down hard like I hopped a curb. Is this common of progressive AAL or should I be replacing my rear shocks?

I have the same, im on 2'' blocks in the rear. Hitting your bump stops when going over it. Adding the lift soffens the shocks. Going to add some firmer procomp shocks on myself.

Air bags would help if you use your truck for towing or have a lot of weight in the rear.

Did you just put the AAL on?

Typically the progressive AAL's ride very nice and absorb speed bumps.

I had this problem also. I just installed a set of Bilstien 5100 rear shocks, problem solved! I am now getting ready to redo my front suspension setup with some aftermarket coilovers & upper crontrol arms, then I will be able to hit speed bumps as fast as I want! LOL

Was this happening before you put the springs on?

Blocks are not the same as springs, and yes you would bottom out pretty hard with 2 inch lift blocks.

No, I've had them on for about 20k miles.

IIRC, it wasn't as stiff with the stock leafs.


I thinking my shocks are worn out. Just wanted to see if anyone had the same problems

So I take it you didn't upgrade to a longer shock when you put the AAL in correct?

I am not familiar with first gen suspension but as far as I have heard yeah that is a good option. Ask some of the 1st gen guys they will steer you in the right direction

EDIT: You can always call DSM. Tell them what you are running and they will be able to hook you up. Plus you get a TW member discount.
