Will anything make the ride smoother

Hummer H2 For those who like a little more gleam to their Hummer, the H2 offers a similar rugged look as the H1, but as a lower cost, and with more added features, making it almost a massive luxury SUV.

Default Will anything make the ride smoother

Hi Every1

I love my H2 but I cant stop complaining about how it rides , if the road is a little bumpy it makes my ride miserable , it feels like falling apart

I had a F150 , a Expedition and drove a diversity of other cars and trucks but never another Hummer . So I dont know if it is a problem with mine or a common issue

And Im not talking about the cabin plastic noises .

Any solution ? , Shocks may be too hard? , any thing will make it better ?
BTW I did check the front end and seems good .

2006 H2 70K miles

If cant be fixed I will have to learn how to live with that ... As selling it Isnt a option .
Thanks in advance

Best way to see if its the truck or the breed, find a '06 at a dealership and take it for a spin...

I was thinking more about it as I was dosing off at the wheel. It's not the breed, these things ride way too nice. Maybe the shocks are done for, or maybe your just getting old..

I will be 49 next month and my 07 H2 Lux (no air suspension...) rides better than my Grand Cherokee! It IS a heavy vehicle with bigger tires and will ride differently. If the ride is THAT bad then I would check for a bad tire, blown shocks, dear caught in the drive shaft, etc... Could it also be that you expected a different ride than what the H2 can deliver? If you find something let us know!
