Bouncing issues. 04 gc

Ok I've searched other threads but couldn't find the exact info I wanted. Last weekend I installed the addco 684 with greasable bushings, all 4 new shocks rancho 5000s. Keep in mind this is the wife's jeep. Anyways she has told me that it is "bouncing" real bad going down the highway. Any noise or problems with this jeep is greatly amplified by her mouth. Lol. So..... any suggestions on possible problems you experts can think of? Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

bouncing on the highway could be cause by both shocks and sways. Take it for a drive and see how bad it is then let us know

Bouncing means that your shocks are not dampening properly. I know nothing about those shocks, but ideally, you want to properly pair your shocks to your springs so that they work in harmony. How are they valved?

I honestly don't know about the valving. All I know is they are rancho 5000s brand new all the way around. Center hub to fender measurements seem to be correct. Assuming they are stock or factory springs.

New shocks + ADDCO sway bar = stiffer ride = more bounce to the ounce, meaning she feels the stiffness instead of the soft ride of the old worn out shocks and the inadequate stock sway bar.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Not sure how to quote the messages here sorry. Love the snoop dog reference. But yeah I think she's just not used to the different ride. I had it out last night doing over 80mph on the state rt and then 70mph on the back country rds. Seemed fine to me. That thing corners SO much better. Now I just need to fix those tie rods. Always something
