1999 Lincoln Navigator Question: truck bouncing up and down

It is possible the tires are bad, they may cause more of a bounce or vibration at certain speeds. If you replaced the air bags in the suspension but not the shocks, then you would be experiencing this type of bounce. The shocks sound like they are worn out, but will not necessarily display any vehicle sagging.

The thing I'm concerned about: the air springs could possibly be overfilled due to an air venting problem with the compressor. Too much air will cause excessive bouncing and harsh ride. A diagnosis needs to be performed to command the system operate its various functions and see if something is failing.
