the service writers exist to sell service. they prey on people that don't know any better.

I had a loose a-arm joint and we found it by rocking the truck back and forward and back while I lay under it to watch for free-play.

i think we did it w/handbrake off but the truck in gear.

bring it to happy hour tomorrow....

The thud could be one bad shock too, worth checking before you go crazy. If the other shock is good it will not bounce much.

they're adjustable RS9000's clockwise for tighter, anti-clockwise for softer - if they're 5+ years old and you're guessing they may be shot that adjustment may not work though, otherwise I really like these shocks, I used to run them in my CJ.
