Floaty Suspension

When i hit bumps in the turns it seems very floaty if that makes sense
Just wondering if that normal for these trucks or I should start looking into it and start shopping suspension parts

Truck is a 2004 RC all original 62500miles
I want to make it handle better all around
I plan on leveling it and some traction bars


Kx

Well, if it has original shocks on it, they are 14 years old, and if you're starting to track the truck, it will show.

Climb under there, wipe off leaking oil from the cooler lines, then look at your control arm bushings and tie rod ends.

Lowered trucks have bad bump steer due to geometry and lack of suspension travel.

My non-lowered RC with poly bushings (including the rear leaf eyes) is very solid and planted. Properly warm the Scorpion Zero's, keep the recommended 38 psi in them and the truck will handle great. The stock Bilstein's dampen the spring rate on these trucks very well if they are in good condition. The truck works better above 90 mph in the turns. The loading gets into the sweet spot of the springs and the front splitter and rear wing begin to work. It's a beautiful thing.

Not to hijack this thread. while I was watching that video, I noticed the gauge cluster with the yellow triangle. Is this a video thing? I don't have that type of gauge in mine.???

The yellow triangle feature gets "unlocked" when you ad mud flaps to your muscle truck!! lol

It's just some sort of graphic that was added to the video.
