I will lower my pressure to 38-39 now that I know I've been running a little high.
I hear you, but I have dozens of speed humps and bumps where I live and the impacts were just too much for my taste. Even my Mustang with the Ford Racing suspension and 20" wheels didn't jar me like the Focus did before I let some air out of the tires!!!
