Do the "shocks" above the side frames on the newer GE's replace the old "yawns" on newer power? My last couple trips ive jumped on some rough riders. After making the jump to light speed a guy couldnt pour himself a cup of coffee. And even at a slow speeds around curves there was a ton of truck hunting/lateral movement/cab wobble.

Anyone else notice that the older GE's are riding more like an old dodge on a dirt road?
