If you can find out what the spring rates are for the springs, you can fit softer springs, BUT, if you do,you must fit harder shockers.or gas filled adjustables (springs give ride comfort,shockers control bounce).most people do it the other way round on cars that are being tuned up.

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser that rides as though it has no suspension system at all, going over the smallest of bumps feels like I hit a giantic sink hole, what do you think the problem is and how do I f


The suspension system being that old probably needs some major work. Beside being a short wheel base does not help. The longer the wheel base the smoother the ride. I bought a new car a short time ago(cross-over) , did not like the ride. Bought a mini-van a year later. Much smoother ride and better gas millage.

If your not hauling a load reduce you tire air pressure, will give a little more smoother ride, also under braking have your front brake rotor checked they might be wrap.

I have a toyota corolla 2001 and I am wondering if a P17570r14 would have a smoother ride than a p17565r14?


the 70 has a higher aspect ratio so it will ride smoother becasue it is taller between the wheel and the ground.

1996 Mark VIII: Air Ride System Keeps Coming On


Hi, yes, I have replaced the air-suspension on a personal towncar sedan I owned with coils and I can say the ride was rough, you can use softer tires and a lower psi in tire to make the ride a little bit smoother, noisy because the rear axle was not designed for a coil to rest on it, so the coils "rub" on the axle when traveling over bumps, and the shocks should be replaced with new heavy-duty but soft type. If it's just the driver and a few passengers, this conversion will work, if you don't mind a rougher ride. BUT if your towing anything or have the trunk and passenger area loaded, the rear will sink, but most likely the tires will not touch the wheel well unless your towing a boat or camper or hit a big hole on the road.
