      Thats awesome. The suspension on the 4th gens are way too soft and bouncy. Sure they are a nice ride on a smooth surface, but any bump in the road the freaking things bounce forever.

      LOL!!!

      I'm going to go ahead and back this statement, I do kinda punch it, slightly, when crossing an abandoned railroad near my work every once in a while. Not anything like Dukes of Hazzard style, but just to add a little bit of the weeee factor to lighten my trip home. Granted, I do have a little more suspension travel than a stock 4th Gen, or a Camry..:rolleyes:

      The suspension in my 4th gen is way softer then dads 3rd gen. I much rather have his firmer suspension. 4th gens are just way to bouncy.

      I must admit though, this was quite entertaining to watch. and I too take railroad crossings at decent speeds, but never had that happen.
