I am very glad someone else is able to benefit from this "fix". It really does seem to work. I am sure a person could experiment with exact weight and placements further if they so desired.

I will...

I have the 2012. And just today I was thinking that I had solved the hard rear issue in the simplest of ways. I had not had that jarring effect that is so horrible.

I put about 100 lbs of...

I have done some extensive driving over the holiday. I am happy to report that I have noticed a definitive change in the harshness of the back axle with the extra weight in the back.

It makes me...

Ah, that is my answer. Trade my 2012 in for a nice shiny new 450h :)

On other news, in my general travels today I did not notice the harshness the way I sometimes do. Weight in the back or just...

OK, I have about 100 pounds of kitty litter in the back of my RX. Hard to tell becasue everything is so subjective and there are many variables. But early results are encouraging. The litter (I use...

Again, speaking for me personally, it is not necessarily a "softer" ride I am after. It is one where I feel that the shocks are at least doing a decent job of smoothing bumps. To me, there is a big...

This sounds like the crux of the problem. I am going to do some experiments. Just got my baby detailed, looks great! I'll throw a bunch of kitty litter bags in the back and give it a try.

I have the 18 inch wheels. Never did understand why someone would want bugger wheels at the expense of the ride feel.

Also, I have had my car about 3 years, so break in is not the factor.

Any 2015 RX350 drivers that can report on...

whether the suspension is harsh, soft, in between? I have the 2012 and the ride can be jarring over certain types of bumps. I figure three years is enough time for Lexus to fix this :)

Thanks, Dave

Great work. It does get rather confusing at some point. (not your work, just the subtlety of it all :) )

For my part, it is the rear suspension that seems to be causing me 90% of the discomfort. I...

I agree with all of the above. Lexus did something very wrong. And they owe us a fix. I will not be getting another one until they own up to this and fix it.

Excellent! I will be very interested to see what they come up with. It is really the only thing I do not like about my car. Well, that and no heated steering wheel. Another major oversight :)

Do you have any names for these companies that could possibly make the ride softer? It is so weird that it only shows up on certain types of or distances of bumps.

Bottom line, this should require...

I have always wanted to test drive the 2014. Now of course, I would test the 2015. I think it is a very sharp looking car and I think Ford has been paying attention in general over the past few years.

I am thinking of Bridgestone's for my next tire. These Michelin's are good, but WAY too harsh of a ride. Way.
