    I'm about to go to get this done...when you say to use the word "harsh", what exactly does that mean???
    Does it mean that it bottoms out with a load, or that the truck sways all over the place???
    Just in case they say to me..."what do you mean by harsh"
    I will have an answer.
    Thanks
    Barry

    If you have no done so, I would cann the 800 number and start a case about the harsh ride. Then bring your case number to the dealer.


    I told them that when I had a load in the bed the truck sagged, might have even bottomed out once or twice and the rear end seemed all over the place and it gave me a very unsafe feeling driving. I mentioned that the weight was around 400-500 lbs. Also mention that the payload of the bed is more than double that. Express how you bought the truck to haul things and you cannot do so now w/o feeling unsafe. Have a copy of the TSB in hand with your VDS number circled and the part numbers of your springs circled.
