Had my '94 YJ for 15 years. Was starting to get to where I could feel every pebble or penny I rolled over so I changed my shocks out (something I don't think had ever been done--we sure hadn't) for a set of Rancho RS5000s. I do a *little* off-roading, but most of the travel is on pavement and was told the RS5K was a good all-purpose set.
The issue: now, if I go over the slightest bump, I get a 2x-3x bounce. Also, if I hit a bump or a dip, i can hear a "thump" and the bump of whatever I ran over, no matter how small. Doesn't seem to be any shock absorption going on at all. I hate to say it, but it seems even worse than the stocks I pulled out.
There's no sway at all when I turn a corner. Just a lack of absorption and excessive bounce. Any ideas?
