    Engine : 2.8 turbo

    Default suspension gurus?

    hi all

    question is my 3.2 elite was running very hard, so i changed all shocks for bilstiens b4's, new kyb springs front and rear and 4x khumo sport tyres also changed drop links while i was there
    all to no avail
    the car feels like it is running on its rims can feel every bump,grain of sand on the road, it will try to throw steering wheel out of your hands if hitting a smallish pothole/bump etc
    the ride is still very hard and rattles my fillings
    the shocks and springs are standard not lowered so wondering if anything can be done to get it to a comfortable ride ????

    please any advice gratefully received dont want my dentist to retire to st lucia on my money

    thanks

    Have only ever had this problem with a bent shock absorber before,
    Bounce each corner of the car and see what one feels 'hard' Could be something jamming a suspension arm?
