Corrugations Sport vs GLS

Can anyone tell me whether the Sport has the same harsh ride on corrugated surfaces as the GLS LWB

I can stabilize your Gen 4 dashboard that will improve the experience, let me know if you’re keen.

Thanks for the responses - disappointing.
Kurt, I live in CT where can I have the dashboard stabilisation done and what is the approximate cost.
Does fitting OME suspension kit improve the experience?

Generally not - after market suspension mostly has stiffer coils that makes a more firm ride. You can choose to just replace the shocks which will help with fade and essentially provide a more compliant ride for longer.
My view of why this is - and by no means an expert is the Mitsubishi used a short control arm. Handles well but is a firm ride

Thanks again Kurt & Michael. My next question must be, how does the bakkie behave on the corrugations and would this be a solution?
