Default Re: Maruti Baleno: Full suspension replaced under warranty!

In order to test how the new rear suspension behaves, I took the car at slightly higher speeds over speed breakers and found that there's a loud 'THUD'

I checked if the spare wheel was not bolted properly. But that was not the case.

At low speeds, the suspension is absolutely fine.

Can you please try this in your vehicle and post your feedback?
The new suspension setup (type 2) is softer. It is much more comfortable at low speeds. The old suspension setup was more planted at high speeds (stiffer suspension). I think that is the reason for "thud". I have not noticed it yet. But it is very much possible with softer suspension. Anyways even the type 2 Baleno suspension is still on stiffer side, it's nowhere close to Hyundai softness
