As you drive down the road or take an off-road adventure, you want to know that you will not experience those jolts, bumps, and rattles as you go over stones, gravel, bumps, and more. If you do not have a strong suspension system or your shocks are shot, then you will have a bumpy and uncomfortable ride. Not only that, your ride will be extremely loud, and you may just avoid driving altogether. You did not buy your truck for it to sit in the driveway and it is meant to head off road.
If you do experience any ride problems with your truck, you can blame it on the coil over and shocks. Your shock absorbers need to be tough and they need to be ready to take on anything that you throw at them. In general, your factory shocks will be enough for you, but over time, they wear down or if they have taken on some abuse, they may not be in the best shape and you will need to replace them with better, updated aftermarket shocks.
Many times, you may not even be experiencing a problem with your shocks and you may just need one of the components that pairs with the shocks such as the shock boots, which slip over the piston rod and help to protect it from any dirt, mud, or debris that may be kicked up while you are off road. The piston cannot take on any damage or else you will experience serious trouble with your truck’s engine, so you need to make sure that your shock boots are in good condition.
As you start to explore whether you need new 99-06 Silverado coil over and shocks, think about whether or not you plan to lift or level your truck at the same time. Often, when you do provide your truck with a lift
, you will need to also switch out the shocks so that they can accommodate the new ride height of your truck. You want to make sure that you purchase even tougher shocks than what you already had as the terrain outdoors is not forgiving, but your shocks can make up for that. On the other hand, if you want to lower your truck, then you will need to purchase shocks that support that. You cannot utilize high-powered and larger shocks that are meant for a lifted truck on a lowered truck and vice versa. Since your shocks help control the way your ride feels, you want it to feel as good as possible.
Coil over and shocks help to provide you with the stability and control you need over your truck when you do rock crawl and articulate or flex on rocks. You will find that the shocks take on the impact, so that you do not feel it inside of the cabin. With premium shocks installed on your truck, you will find that it is much easier to handle as well, and you will be in control of how your truck moves and glides down the road. When shocks start to wear out, you may notice that your truck slowly moves in different ways, especially when you hit a bump or there is a jolt.
All of the coil over and shocks sold here at AmericanTrucks are built with the best quality standards in mind and they are usually made from premium aluminum materials or even steel. They often have a thickened piston shaft and they are finished in a chrome that is corrosion and rust resistant.
