2000 Mini-Bird Shocks?

Hello. Does anyone know if the 2000 Blue Bird Mini-Bird's on the P-Chassis have shocks? It seems like the bus is feeling the full brunt of every bump she goes over. Is this typical for this model? Seems LOUD inside the bus with all of the rattling and BOOM BOOM BOOM when traveling over even small bumps. All help is appreciated. New bus owner here.

Re: 2000 Mini-Bird Shocks?

I have a 98 El Dorado Escort FE on a P30 chassis. There are rear shocks, but uses an airbag inside the coil springs on the front. When I checked the pressure in the airbag it was only 5psi when it should have been 55psi. Made a big difference in the ride. I still feel lots of bumps and bangs, but much better than before
