Hi, I just joined this forum and I thought it might be a good source for info and a good place to seek some needed advice.
I just bought a '08 Mazda B2300 which was built by Ford. Although the label is Mazda, the truck was assembled by Ford with Ford parts. I noticed that the ride seems to be bouncy than the old '86 B2000 Mazda I had before. I would appreciate any suggestions from the members how to tame or minimize the bouncy ride. Are Rangers truck ride this way? Thanks.
Who owned the truck before you? They may have worn out the shocks. How many miles on the truck? 2wd or 4wd? Is the bouncy ride on the highway or in the city.
I had a similar situation with with my Ranger. The ride on the highway was almost unbearable. I replaced my shocks, front and rear. The truck rides great now. You can always push down on each corner of the truck to test the shocks. The truck should push down relatively easy and return to normal with out bouncing. If you have a bad shock or shocks you will be able to tell a difference. Hope this helps.
