Default Rough Ride

Looking for some help to get a better ride out of an 05 Bonne SLE. We have a 99 and an 04 Bonne with great rides. We just bought an 05 and the ride is very stiff and rough compared to the others. 36K mi. with original tires and correct pressure, 17" rims, shocks look okay with no leaks. Any suggestions?

if you have the option for the air ride control... the sport option makes it ride rough... the touring option smooths it out and that would be what you want... if it doesnt have the controls by the shifter im not sure...

I seem to remember Ddalder saying certain years have a stiffer ride because they changed the suspension. That may be the case here.
