Ouch...bang! bang!
 
wow...as i was approaching to what seemed a small dip in the (asphalt) road, I though it should be ok. Huh..no. Once the front end hit it I though my windshield was going to bust (my rear view mirror pointed down)..then again with the rear end...damn..

Before stopping to see the damage I though I had lost the front and rear bumper..:( the suspension is sooo soft...

Who do I talk-to get sport springs and shocks? Going from a sports car to a jeep is tough..

I think talking to your local Roads Manager might be of more benefit?

or maybe just slowing down a little bit more for those dips in the road. ;)

Thanks! just needed to vent..yeah..the city does fix the damage and repairs the road..but the process takes about a 6 months to a year...

and i'm learning to slow down...

I'm sure going from a sports car to a jeep it is a process to keep the foot a little lighter. hahaha. I switch back and forth from our car to jeep and even though it's not a sports car, I drive it like it is. haha. But I gotta remind myself it's not the car from time to time.

Seems like a huge dip for that to happen. I have hit some doozies of holes and "dips" in the road and never had experienced what you did with my Jeep. But I dont have a 2011..
