    Last few weeks I’ve noticed the front become stiffer and absorbs less. Last night after not driving it for a week it was unbearable.

    Took a look and no signs of leaking from the coilovers shock and springs show no damage. Anyone else experienced this? Wondering some options for when I can start digging in. Thinking:
    - bad coil spring (unlikely but possible
    - shocks lost nitrogen/oil somehow (but I think this would make it softer, no?)
    - steering rack issue (all looks fine)


    Truck has toytec/radflo coilovers up front with about 20k miles on them. Problem is def coming from front.

    The coilovers most likely need to be rebuilt.
    You're going to have to inspect, see if there are signs of legit leaking, etc and go from there.
    Toytec can rebuild them

    Def not a flat spot. My truck which is ironically my daily...gets driven the least. Never had flat spotting issues and a flat spot will generally round itself out after a few miles (plus, issue is over bumps)

    So, shocks were shot, most gaskets were completely blown out. ALso swapped from 700lb springs to 600lb springs. drove about 100 miles yesterday on pavement, so much better :)
