I, along with a local shop I think I trust, concluded my tire cupping is being caused by my shocks and struts being worn out. They've got 80K miles on them and I want to replace them all. Where I've been using the Wrangler Duratrac tires that weigh a lot more than the stock tires, that's a lot more weight for the struts and shocks to keep from bouncing all over the place. What do you all know about replacement struts and shocks, if any, that are specifically engineered to handle those higher forces? My concern is that 'regular' ones, even so-called heavy duty products, perhaps are engineered only to handle the weight of stock tire/wheel combinations. And maybe that's why my factory Bilsteins haven't been keeping my front tires firmly on the pavement?

If your shocks are the same ones you purchased the vehicle with back in 2007, then it might be time to look into a new set. How many miles do you have on the car?

If your shocks are new, then maybe go for a coil with a higher spring rate.
