no. .I haven't taken it somewhere to get the readings
Chevy Mechanic: DarrenD41, Service Manager, Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay so to be sure we are on same page here. You feel a misfire in engine under acceleration and when going over bumps you feel the front end bounce continuously. Is this correct?

also feels like the brake is dragging a little when I'm not touching the pedal
Chevy Mechanic: DarrenD41, Service Manager, Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay. I would get it scanned to see which cylinders are misfiring. You may just need a tune up on that part. Have you checked the front shocks for leakage? Shocks are typically the cause of the bouncy feeling in front end. To check which brake is dragging I would suggest jacking up the wheels off the ground and have a buddy pump the brake pedal and see which one is hanging after he release pedal. That should tell you which caliper or hose is causing the brake to hang.
