  • bad shocks?

    hey guys i have bad shocks and i know i need new ones,but i was wondering if it would be causing my car to jerk alot like everytime i get on the gas again between shifts or whenever i pull at like 3000?

    I already know the shocks are shit but i just wanna know if it could be other things and if one of you guys has had this problem,thanks

    Have you replaced the springs? The stock springs are too weak and cause the car to be slinky like while driving...

      Well your springs might be getting weak, but I bet new shocks will fix 99% of the problem. I went from good shocks to better shocks and was surprised at the difference, I'm sure going from bad ones to good ones is mind-blowing.

          Jerks? Doesn't feel like an engine issue? Maybe you should check your drive shafts.

          Terrible idea putting those wheels on...
