We don’t have a vibration we have a car that bounces like a car with worn out shocks. I may have to remove them and check the adjustments to see if they are on the firm settings. The car is in Florida and me and my shop are in S.C.

The car has it’s all other stock suspension parts in place. Also has new Maxxis Radial Tires, set at the correct air pressures. Problem is the car still bounces, similar to a car worn shocks. I have only had late model Corvair’s so I do not have a reference point to work with.
