whilst out on my travels today the front of the punto started bouncing at high speeds (80+), on all different types of road surfaces, the tyres all had 32psi in as i checked them the night before - not sure if this is the correct pressure for the punto, the manual is under the junk in the garage :eek:

any other reasons why it should be bouncing??

many thanks

Might still be the suspension. Have you done the push down and bounce back test while parked?

you push down on each corner of the car and see how it reacts, it should rise back up to it's normal position fairly quick and not bounce around... if it does there's something broken, probably a damper? (i think?)
