Hannes, have you owned an SFA vehicle before?

Due to the high un-sprung mass, corrugations are more noticeable at lowish speeds than in IFS and especially all-independent vehicles.

Strangely, on really bad surfaces, they seem to get better. This is because they have more suspension travel and thus bottom out less frequently.

However, a good set of shocks definitely does improve the situation.

No Peter I have not. So again it is the inexperience talking but I am just wanting to make sure I am not sitting with a problem that might have an easy fix.
