I have a 15' ST that to me seems like it has quite a bit of roll. If I'm driving about 45 mph and I turn the steering well back and forth, the front and rear roll quite a bit. I had a used 15' ST that the front end felt more firm and felt darty. How it is suppose to feel with stock suspension ?

It's probably worth taking a look under the car to make sure everything is tight. Does it make any abnormal noises?

In addition to what's already been said do both vehicles have the same tires? That could be the possible difference.

You didn't specify the mileage. Is it possible your factory struts/shocks are starting to wear out?

Did you get the car new or used?

Check the tire pressure. Being low just a few psi makes a huge difference.

I was bummed my 2015 was starting to feel soft and roll. Checked the pressure and it was down 3 psi. Raised back to where it should be and the car is back to normal.

Both cars were at 15,000 miles when I bought them. My first ST had the stock summer tires, my new one has different tires. I keep my tires at 40 psi all the time unless I'm at auto cross.
