Suspension stiffness?

Ive got a lift, but it's the stiffest suspension I've ever ridden on. Is it just mine or is it you to? Any ways to "loosen" it up

What brand is it? What shocks are you running? Springs will soften up a little but not a whole lot.

Remove your track bars. It will soften up a bit.

Check the torque specs on all the suspension parts, especially the spring mounts and shackles. Alot of people have a tendency to over tighten when installing a lift. Try loosening everything and torque to proper specs.

x2 on the shackle bolts too often they are way to tight and don't move when the springs compresses

What do you mean no springs? Did you do a 4 link with air shocks?

How does your axles attach to the frame? You know we're talking about leaf springs, not coils?

Offroading is suppose to be bumpy lol..... JK .. x3 on checking the torgue specs... my step dad put 4in lift springs on his 95 wrangler and when you would hit any bump you'd basically be airborn.. we lossened them and it made a difference.. Still bumpy but not as bad.. but we also did the leaf over axle.
