Default 2010 C70 Lux SE - suspension?

I'm the 3rd owner of a 2010 C70 Lux SE, 26K genuine miles. Reviews say the suspension of these cars is soft with body roll, however this feels firm and well damped (but not hard) to me. It thumps on manhole covers etc., possibly due to the larger wheels and lower profile tyres fitted to the SE, but there's little body roll. Ride height might be very slightly lower than the standard lowest trim car, and all wheels appear to have a small degree of negative camber.

Were there OE factory order suspension alternatives available for these cars, or did the SE Lux have different springs and dampers to suit the 1" bigger wheels?

Thanks, Max
