So the rear of my truck has been bouncy for the last few months, basically after I put on the CBI rear bumper with tire carrier, spare tire and hi-lift. And I though it was the wimpy looking 2.0 icon shocks that just could not handle the job, but when talking to the ICON guys at SEMA they automatically said the leafs are bad. Looking unde the truck they may have a point. Shouldn’t the dakars have a bow to them?

I actually think that is normal for them. I will get a photo of mine and report back.

Springs only support weight. The tires and shocks tame the oscillation (bouncy part).
