    Default Incredibly stiff suspension. corolla 2001. Help!

    I have corolla 2.OD Limited 2001 model. I have an issue with its suspension. Its way too stiff, i can feel the tiniest bits of bumps on the road and unevenness. Even my alto 2005 does better than that.
    Another proof is an experiment i did. I took it and my alto to an uneven road. I had the front right tyre on higher ground as a result of which the rear right tyre lost contact with the surface(i hope u get it). I did the same with alto, and the rear tyre remained grounded and didnt "lift" in the air.

    One thing i must mention is that this issue is not new. I bought this car in 2002 and its still in mind blowing condition. I'm just mentioning this problem now. It was there when i bought the car.
    The tyre setup is 185/65/r14

    Time to replace suspension as 2.OD engine is very heavy so it used up its suspension earlier thn other versions.
    or change the general tyre into some soft tyres

    Check the nearest Toyota 3S.
    Test the manual pressing on above the Shock absorbers position.

    First replace A539 with Yoko C drive or any other soft tyres , bcos A539 looks better but they make suspension hard,
    also check the shock absorbers & rubber bushes .
