    Wallowing Ride

    I have a 04 Escalade 4WD. Do other Escalade owners find the ride wallows alot when driving? Is there anything you can do for this? Also when driving in stop and go traffic I sometimes get a bang in the rear axle has anyone else experience this problem?

    BG, I switched tires (Bridgestone Revo) and I run them between 38-40 lbs, this seemed to get rid of that "wallowing" ride. Many owners reported a bang when the truck downshifts at low speed, the dealer can fix this with their Scan Tool.

    Had the same problem and fixed it the same way as hcvone.

    40 psi on the stock tires..

    I own a Avalanche and we also complain about that wallow in the ride. Sometimes it wants to wander all over the road and its hard to keep centered in the lane at hwy speeds. I changed my swaybar end link bushings to those hard red ones that you can get at Autozone etc. It made a big differance! I think the rubber bushings are just to soft for heavy vehicles like we drive!

    Had that problem big time w/ 99 Escalade it was horrible when going in and out of driveways it would sway side to side uncontrollably. Now on 20s with lower profile tires it is much more stable!
