My recently had new shock absorbers put on, front and back, but the front end suspension is horrible. There is barely any downwards travel in the front, if any.

I feel every bump and was wondering how I could fix it.

I order my parts from my grandfather's store, is it possible he sent me the wrong shock size in the front?

Thanks!

Hi bradyandhisbike,

Try bumping the vehicle manually and if it is stiff, then you might have one that is too hard for your use.

Yeah, there is virtually no travel. When I bump it down the only vertical movement is actually in the tires compressing. I had a friend press down hard on the car while I was under it and the shocks moved a centimete, if that.
