Hi all, I've been driving my parents 2012 is350 x edition for a few weeks and the suspension seems mega stiff! Its like aftermarket coil over stiff! 

Is this normal for the x suspension?

It crashes over small potholes and speedhumps.

X Package cars all came with the corresponding Sports or F Sport suspensions. They are more stiffer than the ones found in Sports Luxury and Prestige.

Also depending on your kms, your suspensions could be failing.

My 2008 model X at least besides the sports suspension comes with the larger diameter wheels/lower profile tyres which may also contribute to a harsher ride.

The wheels and Tyres are low profile 18's but nothing crazy. It's only done less than 15000 Kms so it wouldn't be that.

Might get under the car to have a look. The right side seems to crash more than the left.

Bigwheels do not make a noticeable difference on the ride quality

The biggest impact is on the suspension spring rate
