New front shocks?

My truck is a little bouncy when it hits big bumps in the road. I was wondering if this means the suspension/shocks are worn out or is it just a soft suspension system. I bought the truck about a month ago so I do not know the type of suspension that is on it. The shocks look newer to me.
Do you
have the same problem?

Try this test. Bounce the car and it should stop bouncing within 3 bounces. If it does, the shocks are okay. If it bounces more times, they need replaced.

Hello,

Here is a video of the front strut replacement on the same style of suspension on a similar truck with instruction on how to do the job on your car in the diagrams below:
