With your SE Sport, I'm guessing you have the 17" wheels on yours? If so, do you find that big bumps feel harsh and unsettle the car if going at any speed over 30 mph? When I first got mine (with 16" wheels), I thought there was a problem with the struts - i.e., not enough damping which would result in wheel hop - and I considered aftermarket/performance struts to fix it. Then I decided to wait until I changed the tires.
Has anyone upgraded the struts? And if so, how did they affect ride and hadling? ...
