I have a 1992 Trooper LS with 155k miles. It is in great shape and
runs very well. Over the past year, I have noticed a tendency to
really "bottom out" upon hitting a bump. I am a musician and carry
around a lot of heavy gear in the back. The frame is apparently
hitting the underside of the body when loaded down and I hit bumps.
Rather annoying and a very discomforting sound. I replaced the shocks
earlier this year and this did not really make a difference.
I'm told that the coil springs may need to be replaced. Does anyone
know much about doing this and if there is some standard type of
spring to use? I may want to put heavier duty springs due to the
Any recommendations are appreciated.
