    are the rims alloys (VXL walay) or regular wheel cover walay.

    Check the Wheel Balancing.

    Alignment should be done after Tyre change.
    It will solve your problem, if its the root problem.

    @KamranAslam rims are alloy, but not company fitted. Tyre pressure now at 30psi in all that has some how reduced jerks/bumps. Should i switch to regular wheelcover ones??Will it improve level of comfort?

    clearly your tyre pressure was more than 30 and in that case, any tyre would have given such issue. so chill out and have fun having 30 PSI in all tyres. but once someone said to me to have 28PSI in front tyres on long journey while 30 in back. not sure about these are good or not. just sharing.

    the standard tyre size for sojoki kultaz is 155/80/R13, air pressure 28 ~ 30 psi maximum. if you have purchased the NEW tyres of same specs or 165/80/R13 there shall not be a problem.

    Incase you have swapped from a tyre shop for used tyres with alloy rims, you need to do some exercise and dirty your hands. park the car over levelled surface in daylight physically inspect the tyres plus feel each tyre with hands around as if pampering a kitten any bulge or boil in used tyres causes such bumpy ride.

    chacha jan if you are running on stock wheels correct me with the wheel size,

    what is the size of tyres ?

    ***update your rim status with a picture.

    I am using dunlop eco from last 4years 175/70/13 -- have been a comfy ride on both rims earlier wheel-cover one and recently VXL alloys. Dunlop Eco are well known for comfortable ride within a budget --- bumpy ride on new ones strange.

    Check the front shock and spring both --- I changed them last year, was heavy on my pocket but the charm of driving is like driving it from showroom to home.

    as per my 3S shop - Old ones were still alive to run more, but at bumps small pits I felt them more then before for this replaced the whole front unit.

    when tyres are worn out, you dont exactly know the status of your car suspension. you got new tyres. now your car is telling you what other things ou need to get checked/replaced. get your car suspension checked.

    year of manufacture of tyres also needs to be checked. rubber has a shelf life. it gets hard without even being used. check your tyre manufacture year. some shop keepers sell old tyres which are new to look at but zero to use.

    after market alloys are fancy. BUT, the level of comfort that you enjoy with factory fitted ones can never be compared.

    150000 run mai suspension ki life bhi pori ho gai change the shocks & springs both from suzuki shop warna kam to chal he raha hota hai in summers 28 in all 4 & in winter 30 psi in all 4 wheels. hamary paas idher 4 cultus hain sab ki maintenance regularly hoti hai so engine wise cars are gud gud but suspension bohat maatha hai kuch na kuch kitch kitch lagi rehti hai

    LOL -- @sweetheart: thats to much for me, I rather appoint one for all these queries.

    However, Kabli's are good if the purchaser judge them well, even if you plan to get kabli get them in pair - looks like you tried one-good one-bad mostly end up all-bad.

    new one price as I remember between 8-10 K for both front shocks/springs.
