Hard riding explorer

I recently bought a 96 Ford Explorer (Sport). The suspension is really rough over Missouri roads. Is there something I can do to soften the ride?

Re: Hard riding explorer

Replace or Upgrade Shocks would be a good place to start.

Re: Hard riding explorer

unfortunatly 96 thru 99 exp sports are notorious for a rough ride.
i have not worked on any in an attempt to improve the ride quality so cant really give you accurate answers on where to start to look.
but if you are looking at possibly the shocks there are several available for better ride control, designed for offroad.
but you will pay a little more for them as well.

Re: Hard riding explorer

The best advice is to strap in and hang on! When my friends complain about the ride I tell them to remember who they always ask to drive when we get two feet of snow and they can't get their cars out of their driveways. Remember - They go about anywhere (if you drive with some sense) but it doesn't stop too quick.
