How To Loosen Puma Suspension
Posted 17 August 2010 - 12:34 PM
Sorry if this has been covered before but I have owned a puma for about 4 years now and my backside is getting tired of what I feel is overly-hard suspension. I dont know if it is set to factory defaults or what but I would like to know how I can soften the suspension so I dont have to avoid every pit and bump in the road!
Is it something I can attempt with a simple car jack or do I need to get a garage to hoist the car up and loosen it? I'm a decent diy mechanic and willing to have a go at anything, just not an expert..

the most important thing is to check you can get a spanner over the nut at the top of the strut in the engine bay as you will need to turn that nut but hold the center still with an allen key else the whole lot will spin

Plus it won't make it any more comfortable per se. Could be that the dampers need changing?
Are you running standard wheels? Difficult to diagnose really and I wouldn't be starting anything unless you're clear what you're doing and what for.
