Will it go?

I went over to a friends house and thankfully chose to take the Santa Fe. He is rebuilding their back yard and I offered my help to pick up another round of paving stones for the new patio. He had another 75 in his Audi Allroad which handled the weight a bit better thanks to its load-leveling suspension.

The SF, on the other hand, did not enjoy this trip despite being just below the GVWR. It had virtually no power on take-off and braking maneuvers needed to be planned well in advance. I can't imagine towing with this car.







Check out the spring compression. I had to be very careful going over bumps.

Hi Andrew, is the rear suspension original or were the struts changed recently. You must consider the wear on the springs, if they are 5 or 6 years old it is normal that they sag a little more than would new struts. That being said I agree it is really low... :blink:
