    Is the level ride system intact or did you fill the shocks thru a schrader valve you installed? With just a driver and a full tank of gas, the shocks should have about 20 PSI in them. The system is designed to have air in the shock at all times.

    Also, what does "very poor ride" mean? Too soft? Too firm?
