    i have a 01 explorer sport that rides very rough, i figured at first it was tires so i put on new goodyear wranglers, and that helped a bunch but still seems like it is really harsh on bigger bumps, i figured shocks but im not sure, it rides stiff not like bad shocks.

    any thoughts on this?

    Its 5 years old, new shocks couldn't hurt. Shocks can make a truck ride like crap easily.

    when my mom got her 95 the last guy used it for major towing, rode like a semi lol... just kept telling her its a truck and they all ride like that. after i got mine i noticed it rides like a caddy compared to hers. well not thinking about the towing thing the last guy put HEAVY DUTY shocks on the rear end. was a normal shock with a coil spring on it lol...i belive i found the problem with hers lol. might see what kind of shocks you have, get a gentle ride shock...good luck
