Actually, the ride in a 2011-up GM HD is worse than the 2010 and earlier truck with the more flexible chassis. Tire balance has also become more critical has the newer chassis transmits a lot more...

Wow, that's really good to know. I am going to sell my Freightliner next week.


Those GM trucks will have a lot of company in the wrecking yards shortly.

Hate to say it, but not any more. The 2011-up GM HD's now have the strongest frames in the industry by a wide margin. Those twist videos are not a joke, boxed rails and tubular crossmembers welded...
