    Rear suspension seems harsh!!!

    Anyone else think that there rear suspension is a bit harsh and crashes lots over even mild bumps? this is in normal mode not sport mode. the front seems to soak up the bumps but the rear is not seem so compliant, it seems as though there is not as much travel in the springs! tyre pressure is not too high either! anyone got any comments?????

    Re: Rear suspension seems harsh!!!

    I was driving quite a lot today. I think it's supposed to be like that?!

    Re: Rear suspension seems harsh!!!

    Grant, do you have -20mm or PASM? I have PASM and with normal setting (non-sport), the right is pretty smooth. Any bumps are absorbed nicely. I didn't notice any harshness in the rear of the car.

    It's supposed to be like that.

    As you get more miles on it you will find that the suspension softens a little and you get more used to it. By the time you get to 10K miles it will feel wonderful. the engine also loosens up about the same time. It's another good reason for driving your car hard and often.

    Re: It's supposed to be like that.

    Make sure your tires (tyres) are not over-inflated. That will cause some harshness.

    Re: Mine does not feel harsh at all

    I would go to the dealer and try out their demo car. See if there is a difference to yours.

    In sport mode, yes the car can feel harsh, and very harsh on bad roads. But the non-sport setting is very smooth on my 997S. Even my wife and mother(70+) finds the car to be exceptionally smooth and comfortable when sport mode is off. And around here in the spring time, the roads are very bad.!

    Re: Mine does not feel harsh at all

    Hey the 911 is a sports car. But yea it seems very hard on big pot holes and bumps. Infact my car has now developed a couple of rattles because of it.
