Exclamation Hardbody, soft stomach

Wondering if you guys have ever run into motion sickness issues with D21s. My better half has been getting pretty queasy in my 88 4x4 VG. Clean can, no weird smells or interior messes, new KYB Gas-Adjusts, and just tightened up the sag in the T bars. No front end funny business. My last one was a 94 KA 4x4 that bothered her a bit but just chalked it up to having softer shocks on there. All i hear is she misses my RWD and of course the bench seat.

Not convinced it’s a “her” problem, my truck handles way better than her XJ. any thoughts?

My girlfriend gets car sick pretty easy doesn't matter if it's my truck or my car. Most folks that get car sick usually don't if they have the wheel.

Maybe it's what Deerhurst said, OR maybe she don't like Nissans. So you might have to get rid of her, unfortunately it happens sometimes. It's OK though, girls come and go, but NISSANS last forever/ Especially if you treat them right, with Respect and Kindness.

I see this as more of a "person problem". My DW gets car sick if she's not watching the road... like she's reading her phone.

Also, sometimes... has to do with my driving. I can be an aggressive driver, especially when there are ID-10-T's driving around me and I need to get past them. I don't play...

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

I recently rode with a coworker at the wheel who was jerky. Just slight movements on the steering wheel that started getting to ME in the back seat. I NEVER get queasy, but this guy's driving was doing it.
That's my passive aggressive way of saying that it is probably your driving.

Yeah, I sort of figured it was some combination of my driving in MKE traffic and her. Hard to drive grandfatherly when there's people passing you in the bike lane and swerving all over. Thanks guys! the inner ear is a strange beast
