Shocks

Has anybody ever added shocks to their rig? I am thinking about because it just seems like we have a lot of movement back there.
Thanks

They done away with shocks a long time back. Equa Flex would be the way to go in my opinion.

Equa-Flex®

I've read on some other forums that they can wear out the bushings. I wondering if this is your problem since your rig is around 7 years old. Maybe checking the condition or replacing the bushings may help.

You are correct.... My center link bushings were fine but here is a picture of my rear bushings after about 2000 miles. I decided to switch over to the Mor Ryde. Why they used nylon instead of bronze is questioned. They have now gone back to bronze as far as I know.

That is what all the bushings on mine looked like when I took them out and did the wet bolt mod.
