If you're dumb (or me), try this....



Well, the shocks in my truck are pretty much dead, so I thought it would be a good idea to take out all 4 shocks and try driving my truck.

Well, I don't think I've ever laughed so hard from driving.

I could get the front wheels off the ground from repeatedly hitting the brakes, my friends thought I bought hydro's

If I stand next to my truck and bounce the suspension, I can bounce the rear end into another parking spot, I can also get the trailer hitch from slamming into the ground from bouncing on it.

Also, cornering is (obviously) totally unsafe, waaaay too much body roll, I could probably easily flip my truck cornering hard in either direction. Peeling out from a standstill results in a lot of rear axle hop, so does locking the brakes.

I wish I had a video camera (and a life).

P.S. do not try this at home, I am a trained idiot and feel like risking my life and vehicle for no reason what so ever in the name of curiosity.
