Every vehicle design is a study in compromise. Engineers have to choose between superior performance at higher cost and adequate performance at lower cost. Unfortunately performance often suffers as a result of this compromise.
Not all trucks and vans fit this model, but many do. Shock absorbers that are inadequately rated for the severe duty experienced in hauling and/or towing service may begin to exhibit body roll when cornering or navigating curvy roads.

Replacing those tired shocks with new gas-filled, heavy-duty shock absorbers can restore some performance, but may not completely resolve the problem. Our experience at Champion Frame-Align Inc. is that tired shocks often can be a symptom of larger, more severe suspension issues.

Fortunately, we’ve solved many suspension problems for a wide range of trucks and vans.
