We don?t have a vibration we have a car that bounces like a car with worn

they are on the firm settings. The car is in Florida and me and my shop are
in S.C.

Hello Rick,

I had a similar problem way back (about 15 years ago) when I installed new
shocks all around on our Greenbrier. Really, it was only the front end that
bounced when I first took it out for a drive but it felt like the whole
truck was some sort of carnival ride.  Upon bringing it back to the shop I
found that the special front shock bumpers didn't seat into the shock
towers when I bolted everything together, despite putting a floor jack
under and compressing the A-arm when tightening the shocks.  Only driving
up and down a bumpy road got them seated properly and I was simply able to
reach into the front wheel wells and tighten the top shock studs which were
way loose.
>>>Problem solved.
