Rear suspension a bit soft?

It's been a couple of weeks since the purchase of my GTV V6, and after sorting out a couple of minor niggles everything seems great and I'm loving the car.

One thing does bother me though: the other day I fancied giving it a bit and upon cornering left out of a roundabout (not very hard at all) I heard the O/S/R tyre scrape the arch. I was quite surprised as, like I said, I wasn't going that mad.

Do the GTV's suffer from arch scraping or do I have a faulty part? I must admit the car does feel slightly soft over uneven surfaces at speed. Although I am used to uprated Koni shocks on previous cars.

With reliability will ultimately come monotony.....

Re: Rear suspension a bit soft?

Mine does it quite a lot... especially drivers side when turning left a little with foot on the floor, hitting only very small bumps (especially off roundabouts). Mine looks quite low, but think its cos I'm used to the TS which is higher. Also I suspect the 9 yr old springs may have sagged a little... planning on some Eibach/Bilsteins when I feel flush enough to justify the expense.
