Hi guys,

It looks like my suspension is too firm. I feel all even tiny bumps and pot holes on the road. Big pot holes are extremely noticeable and sometimes they even cause a back pain.

I had been driving my Focus for 1 year before I had a chance to drive a rented car. My experience was completely different on the same road. I didn't feel tiny pot holes at all and the big ones were slightly noticeable. It's my first car so it was my first chance to compare my suspension with another one. And now I'm disappointed in mine and I think it's not working properly.

Is there any way to improve my suspension somehow and make it more softer? Should I change my wheels or tires? Or is there any other way?

My configuration:

  • Ford Focus 2014 Titanium
  • 17-inch Sport Aluminum Wheels
  • Cooper Zeon RS3‑A 215/50R17 tires

Thank you,
Mykola

A smaller rim and tire combo like a 15 inch will change the ride but also handling as well as appearance
Weather or not the pros or cons work for you , thats another topic

It will never ride like a land yacht BTW

What was the rental car

Yup, smaller wheels & taller tires to match is the way to get a cushier ride on the small bumps.

Have you checked tire pressures to make sure they didn't get over inflated?
