Default Factory shocks any good?

I get a lot of rear tire bounše when empty with tire pressure above 55psi or when the WDH is hooked up on the TT with 65-70psi.. With my utilty trailer and around 500 lbs on the hitch it rides nice. I suspect insuffţcent shocks? 2015 SD 4wd supercab.

All the factory shocks on the SDs are crap. I've had 3 go out within the first 3,000 miles I think.

Change to any aftermarket shock will result in better handling and ride instantly.

Translation:

Yes Sir, when I spoke with the Gentleman he was absolutely certain that my vehicle had been modified beyond its original capacity, ensuring more performance. I have purchased and installed several performance items including floor mats.

The match was unequal as his vehicle was far less superior than my own. I offered to secure his vehicle to my own, ensuring a more equaled match, he declined.

Ranchero is a car / truck, Rancho is a shock

Yes, but worth reviving for the humor. BTW, the SD shocks are made by Rancho. I have found Bilsteins to be an improvement. Some go with Fox or higher end Ranchos.
