Ensure that your tires are properly inflated and have even tread wear. If the tires are out of balance, it can also contribute to bouncing.    Alignment Issues: Improper wheel alignment can result in uneven tire wear and cause your vehicle to bounce. If the wheels are not aligned properly, it can affect how the tires interact with the road surface.   Damaged Springs: The springs in your vehicle’s suspension system help absorb shocks.

These tread depth indicators are not able to be seen when the tires are new. Bars running perpendicular to the tread will start to show themselves as the tire tread gets low. If you notice the tread depth indicators, your tread depths are too low and you should replace your tires.  Another way you can check the tread depth, believe it or not, is with a penny. To determine if your tires are low on tread, place the penny in your tread with Lincoln's head pointed down. If you can see the top of his head, the tire tread is low and new tires should be purchased in the near ... read more
