I just changed 4 shock absorbers (front are Thai made Tokico and rear are japan made original Nissan) for my Nissan Latio. However, I am still feeling that the ride is still not comfortable (can feel every bump on the road). This is the same as before changing the shock absorbers.

Anyone know if this mean the new shock absorbers are not good or is there something else I need to change?

If the same,  likely is the tyre pressure or tyres

That shows that your car tires are firmly gripping the road. That is good. Did you installed strut bars into your rides?

Yes. I change because ride not comfortable and the shock absorbers are 11 years old already. 😅

No. I didn't install strut bars. Everything is stock for my Nissan Latio.

I am also driving 12 years old COE car. I have upgraded stiffer shocks and added strut bars. Yes I can hear & feel every single small stone that the tires go over but not that bumpy. I have recently replace all engine mount after 11 years but that does not reduce the bumpiness. I have also did sound proofing at both front and back wheel arch and it reduces a lot of road noise. Identified whether discomfort from the car jumping up and down or road noise.

Did you just change your ride reecently? Actually you need to specify the symptom that causes you to feel uncomfortable and also describe what has been done to your car so that people here can have better judgement. Your ride may be lowered so no matter how many absorbers you change you will still feel bumpy. If your shocks are still good and you changed them, I don't think that will improve the situation. Have your mechanic check through your vehicle and let them advise what is broken.

You can consider comfort tyres too.

Latio and Sylphy springs (suspension) are soft. You need to change to stiffer ones.

TS check your bushings too.

 

You feel anything wrong with your handling or not?  Your steering...consistent?  You should be able to feel all these through your hands.

 

:)

 

My suspensions leak and bushing gone, now awaiting replacement.  It is not a pleasant ride at the moment.
