Ride Question w/Lift. Bad shocks ??

Guys,

I just put on 35's and a 2.5 Pro Comp lift with ES9000 shocks. The ride is ok but if I ride over the dots dividing the lanes or even bumps in the road it goes a bit crazy. Is this the shocks ?? Are they just garbage ?? Thoughts would be great.

You need to expand on "Goes a Bit Crazy". What does that mean??? The steering goes crazy.....the ride is very harsh...etc. What exactly are we referring to?

The Jeep feels unstable. Not really a wobble.

Replaced the Pro Comp shocks with Rancho 9000's. Problem solved. Huge difference.

Check the pressure on your tires. Most are running 30 psi and under. Much more than 30 psi usually results in a harsh bouncy ride. X3 on the shocks. The Rancho 9000s are adjustable and make a huge difference in the ride. Good Luck.
