• Inspect for missing, shifted, cracked or broken leaf springs.
  • Inspect that spring mounts are not cracked, broken or missing hardware.
  • Inspect that shock absorbers are secure, not damaged, and not leaking.
  • Inspect that shock absorber mounts are secure with no missing hardware.

“I would inspect the leaf springs and shock absorbers next. There should be no shifted, cracked or broken leaf springs. Both the front and rear mounts must be secure, not cracked or broken, and no missing hardware. Dents or other signs of damage, including leaks could indicate a problem with the shock absorbers. I would also check the top and bottom shock mounts for signs of damage or missing parts.”
