Hey guys, I just got my Ultraswing last week and definitely love it, but I did notice pretty noticeable bouncing in the back when going down washboard type (lack of better words) roads or freeways. I do have Icon 2” springs with 2.5 Resis non adjustable shocks in the rear. Anyone have a similar issue and find a fix for it?
I get that on certain speeds on rough highways too. It’s just the right vibration to feel it all the way through the steering wheel. A light tap on the brakes will stop it.
Otherwise probably check your torque specs every month or two. I noticed mine worked its way loose after a few hundred miles of very rocky offroading.
No bouncing. I had mine for 4 months.
Yeah, same here. I thought it was my overburdened stock leaf springs that were to blame, but I just had my full suspension replaced (front/rear shocks, control arms, and much heavier leaf springs) and there was no difference afterward. I think it is an oscillating effect of certain roads + weight + length of vehicle. I don’t feel any vibrations in the steering, just the back end going up and down. Very dependent on the road.
I have the exact same issue as @Mattada … vibration on highway at certain speeds … once I let off gas OR accelerate through it it stops. I’ve gotten used to it as it’s not all the time by any means.
Cool thanks for the replies! I’m getting used to it now. Good to know I wasn’t the only one experiencing it.
When I first put on the ultra swing, I winged it.
I did notice the bouncing, so I watched some youtube videos and forgot to torque correctly the hitch & put in the hitch pin to get the perfect distance while locking down everything. Everything is now Perfect and I am good to go.
So please check out some videos on YouTube and get a good Torque wrench to 90 pounds and you should be fine.
