That is not unheard of for small trucks with big lifts on them. At least you didn't end up on your head!!

a common problem. with the /\ shock setup you need stiffer shocks to compensate for the angle that they are now clocked to. Switching to an adjustable rear shock that you can stiffen up for hwy use and soften for the trail may solve the problem.

The Chevy springs are very long, flat, and flexy. My truck used to act the same way, especially with a load in the back (I'm not running any sort of anti-sway bar). I recently got rid of my blocks and stuck an add-a-leaf in there, and it rides 100% nicer now!

You can use ProComp Add a leaf, part number EXP-13124. You will also want to make sure your shackles are close to 7" center to center.
