All of a sudden feel the bumps.

I recently did a atf change and brake fluid change done at Castrol - Coquitlam. Nice guys and all but after they finished, I noticed my car really feels the bumps now. Before I never really felt the small bumps and cracks on the road but now I swear the small crack will make my car shake. I used OEM atf fluid from honda and OEM brake fluid also from honda on my csx. First time going to Castrol. Noticed when they were working on my car, one of the cars are unscrewing/unscrewing things on the inside of the wheel wall, I don't know if it was required to do the brake fluid or atf change. Please help me out, can never have a smooth ride. PS. Just to add on my shocks were fine, I don't think it could have worn out so badly in the course of one day.

maybe they were being nice and wanted to inflate your tires, but over-inflated instead?

only thing that comes to mind to me is just knowing you car was worked on, you have somehow convinced yourself something changed when in reality you just didn't notice it before.

i had this happen when i got into an accent with my car, it was a scuff on my hood, nothing else and i all the sudden thought my steering was all messed up and was feeling shakes, sure enough a week later.. it was nothing, i was just worried and noticed everything

They were probably just loosening up your bleeder screws on the caliper. I think it's also in your head. just like when i fill up a tank of gas the car seems to run better than when it was empty
