    I think you'll probably find that the shocks on the rear are shot, everyone kept saying to me that the rear of my car had a REALLY harsh ride.
    But the shocks were actually wrecked so every bump just threw the rear all over the place, it felt like the rear end was too stiff, but it was actually the exact opposite.

    Im sure someone else will come in with much the same story, we've nearly all had to replace our shocks/springs, the standard VX rubbish only last around 40k miles.
