Shocks from car

The Brothers advised to add static straps to do away with shocks when leaving the care. I did that, genuine NAPA truck straps screwed to frame…it seemed to help for a bit, but now most times the Wife gets shocked. They are still draggin of course. Dunlop signature tires.

any thoughts?

I would suggest getting an anti-shock spray (check your local computer store) or try spray starch.  That often will take care of the problem.

Tell her to touch something metal, such as the door frame, while exiting the vehicle.

What does the owners manual say? this book should be read more.
