Cars are engineered to clear bumps and potholes (within reason)…but any vehicle is going to struggle to work normally when it’s loaded up with cargo and passengers. If you find that your vehicle is jolting around like crazy every time you drive over a dip or bump in the road, you might need a little suspension help from us here at Airbag World.
“Bottoming out” is what it’s called when the frame of the car hits the axle. It means your suspension is compressed all the way down, so that shock isn’t really being absorbed when you hit bumps in the road. This is pretty common in stock cars, which are designed to sit low and hug pavement, and might get a little banged up on a bumpy strip. For your towing and hauling vehicle, however, this should definitely not be happening.
