Now I have had my car since October of 09. I live in Canada, so we have our cold winters and our road problems.

seems like this car likes to bounce around and unless you have a tight grip on your steering wheel, you seem to go all over whenever you hit a rut or a bump or something unusual on the pavement.

now I know the SX has the sports suspension and I read that it tends to feel everything and it's all so it can grip the turns better..

but is it supposed to feel like it has very little consistency and stability when it hits uneven or bumpy pavement?

I'd think imo it has some to do with the weight ration.. seems the back end of the car is alittle too light, I notice this when hitting bumps on corners..

Anybody know the weight ratio of the koups? I'm cuirous

You have to keep in mind that forte's rear suspension is semi-independent. Also, tires help cushion the shocks (which are gas).

Weight distribution was something like 64% on front. So, for the koup 64% of 2933lb is on front.
