Driving the truck around John's makeshift route takes us over just about every obstacle you might come across in your daily drive. There is a set of raised railroad tracks, a few speed bumps, and numerous dips. John says, "This is the route I test all of my suspension kits on," so if it's good enough for him, it will work for us. Driving the route the first time showed us the shocks were just too soft; the truck did ride like an early Caddy but had almost no control when we hit the railroad tracks. It was time to turn the dials and really see what they could do to control the bounce. See sidebar for our notes concerning shock adjustment for this particular truck and how it reacted with each adjustment.
