I own a Micra K11 from 1999 for some months now.
The car has been lowered with lowering springs. The thing is, that the car is really bouncy, but when driving over a threshold or something, it instead feels like the shockabsorbers or springs are really tight.
Is the bouncing / noticing of almost every unevenness in the road due to the shock absorbers or springs? Are they worn out or is it just because the car has been lowered or because it is old (so maybe the suspension is just like that)?
I have driven in a Toyota Starlet, and this car was really fluent on the road, even though it was even older than my car.
I'd like to point out that my handling of the car is not bad. Going over bumps and thresholds are less comfortable than I've experienced in other cars and I wondered if this may be due to the springs or shock dampers.
