Citroen C5 2002-Suspension very hard

Post by JosephM »

Good afternoon,

The suspension/ride of my Mk 1 C5 2.0 HDi has become very hard and it is not that fun to drive anymore. Is there anything I can do to soften it again without going into much expence?

Thanks,
Joseph

Load it up with as much weight as you can and drive it around for an hour.
They are at their best with a decent load and will usually ride better for days after.

Do first check the level of the LDS though, perhaps it needs topping up.

I would check your ride height first off. Is the car riding higher than normal?

I've recently had this issue on my car and had to manually adjust the height adjustor to get the car back down to earth.
