This might be a case where size does matter. The scrawny stock damper is full of hot air-or some high-pressure inert gas-and wasn't even close to being able to control the Silverado's rear axle movements. Replacing the optional "Heavy Duty" rear shocks with Rancho RS 9000Xs (PN 99262 is a perfect fit) made a world of difference. While the vehicle isn't all that well balanced with the stock front shocks still in place, it may be close enough.
