Bumpy ride - Discussion

Discussion in 'Tyres & Alloys' started by soori, Feb 22, 2012.

  1. I have had the opportunity to drive old as well as new suspension in the same car, shaking effect is similar if not the same and also body roll is slightly less due to lesser GC.
    Jarring sound while going on rough patches is due to hard rubber of the tire.

    I am on Bridgestone MY-02 shoes... from GoodYear NCT5 stock.
  3. I am on Michelin,even it makes road noise on rough or gravel surface,depending on the tire you can get say 80 or 90 of silent ride not 100%.
    I haven't seen/driven a car with BMY-02,can't comment.

    Also, someone please tell me how much GC loss happens with 4-5 adults inside Linea and a loaded boot? Will the "loss" be different between old suspension and new?

    Dear D.r Stephen,
    Now you are jumping from bumpiness to shaking!!

    Hello Sat ji, I started a thread which explained my difficulties-mainly this shaking effect of MY LINEA-2012.At that time I didn't give anything about bumpiness.In due course of discussion,moderator of our forum,changed the title to BUMPY RIDE OF POST2012 CARS.I know for handling the spring should be slightly stiff and ride comfort has to be sacrified.Cars with these springs are just like low pass filters.All the low frequency motions of wheels will be transmitted to the car body.Hundais and other cars have slightly less stiff springs.So handling is sacrified and ride comfort is achieved.ACTUALLY I HATE KOREAN THINGS. Otherwise I would have bought a hundai.I really like FIAT.What I am searching-comments and suggestions-which will give good ride and reasonable handling with at least 175 mm GC.I am not ready to roll back to pre-2012 suspension,sacrificing GC to lower than 175mm.IF A SET UP SUITABLE FOR LINEA WITH 175 OR 172 MM IS POSSIBLE,THE BALANCE CAN BE ADJUSTED BY SELECTING A SUITABLE HIGH SIDE WALL TYRE MATCHABLE TO MY PRESENT 5 ALLOYS.

    I have taken test drive of the post 2012 Linea but I didn't feel much body roll. Infact the ride quality was almost similar to my 2009 Linea.

    Only Puntos have a drastic difference in ride quality at slow speeds between pre-2012 and post-2012 models. Linea's 2012 suspension is better calibrated.

    If we talk about slow speed body roll, its there is in pre 2012 Suspension Linea also.I feel body roll in my 2099 Linea at low speed especially in bad roads or potholes roads.
