Default Suspention impressions of members.

I ocassinaly have to drive the Bruiser trough some rought roads,when I say rough I mean not offroad dirt and rocks,I mean some tarmac with the ocasional lump or hole in it,so sometimes I get the swimming in the ocean feeling when going over deformed from heavy vehicles tarmac surface,sometimes I hit a hole,sometimes out of pure not paying attention I go too fast over a speed bump.

You guys have had your for a very long time,so whats your impressions on the suspention,the shocks,the rubbers,are they tough,have you ever had problems with them?

I lowered mine with Eibach's and hated the ride..until I switched to the Tokico struts and shocks made for lowered cars. Much better now. Sounds like an advertisement, but you asked.

But I was asking for the stock suspention,and not how the ride is,but does it get damaged often,how tough is it.

the front sway bar bushings or end links beat out and make the bar clunk in the retainers and the lower control arm bushings are junk, same as the neons. theyll let you get pretty bad wheel hop if you race much. cheap and easy fixes, but they almost all need changed at this point. cant vouch for the rear suspension, as i havent had to deal with that on my new-to-me 05 GT yet and its nothing like the neons haha
