Hello, I recently bought a D&R Diablo and just wanted to know what I could do to improve the suspension on the car. The suspension is very rough and when I hit bumps it throws the car all over the road, also feels like the car is sorta floating when driven , steering not very responsive if that makes any sense. Thanks for anyones input.

It could be alignment, worn strut or A arms bushings, bad struts or bad steering rack or column.

This condition is usually related to the spring weights. If the springs were cut to achieve the ride height then you will need to go with stiffer springs. Even though you feel the suspension is 'very rough' it is caused by weak springs and the car is actually bottoming out. With stronger springs it will ride smoother.

PM me with details about the suspension that is in the car. ie. if it is a stock fiero or if it has had any upgrades done to the car. Or if it is a custom chassis. I can get you going in the right direction as to how to fix it.
