If you're referring to the long term test they did on a 2004 where the rear suspension blew out after 4 hours off pavement, I think you're taking things out of context. 2004 was the first model year and is infamous for its rock hard suspension. There have been two suspension updates between that one and yours. Blaming your suspension problems on that one is like comparing apples to oranges IMHO.
