They therefore have stiffer spring weights which results in the loose feeling when not loaded.
Ummm.... I wouldn't say that's the case with my ute. Power oversteer and wheelspin is too easy:s6: . Althought my XC ute is only powered by a mild 351 and has 275/50/15's on the rear:s5 .
Hope the new XR utes have better traction from as much if not more power than mine.
