    Default Slightly Harsh Ride from the rear end.....

    Recommended this site by a friend of mine.....
    The problem:

    My 2006 Signum is giving a bit of a harsh ride from the back end. It is on standard 17" Vx alloys with 215 / 50 R 17 NCT 5's on it.

    After a recent puncture repair, the ride has become slightly 'crashy' over large bumps and speed ramps. Its only got 41k on the clock so surely it cant be the shocks that are knackered.

    Any help appreciated greatly!

    My SRI hatchback is similar to this, I thought it was just the SRI suspension which is a fairly stiff ride.

    To take the obvious out.....have you checked tyre pressures? make a lot of difference

    Tyre pressures are running at 35psi - checked at least weekly.
    Its not a nice feeling when going over low speed bumps. SOmewhat crashy.
    Ah well - will have a good look at the spring / shock in a bit when I rub the sleep from my eyes.....

    My wife complained of the same sitting in the back how uncomfortable it was, more so when I changed the suspension as well.
