Default Suspension

My suspension feels like its getting weak. I can hit a bump and it feels like a sport suspension. No bounce at all, just dips when i go over them. Could this mean new suspesion all around, my air suspesion is bad or both? I also noticed that I just got my wheel aligned 2 weeks ago and my steering was fine until yesterday. My car pulls to the right when i take off. It did not do this for the 1st week I had the alignment done though.

When you hit a bump and don't get a bounce, it'* working like it should. If your struts were going, you'd get the 1960 Cadillac bounce. If you think it'* going south, get the maintenance manual out and read the strut codes. I doubt you have a problem, or you'd be getting warning lights.

Tire pull is a STEERING problem not a SUSPENSION problem BTW! Your suspension sounds normal! Check your tire pressures first off to make sure they're all EQUAL! Next check your stab kits! BTW: You're sure it'* not Torque Steer you're experiencing?
