Default Tracked autonomous robot - how to solve suspension

Hey guys,
I am a member of an university project and we are making a autonomous terrain robot. But when we have build a second version, we got into problems with vibrations since there is no suspension at all on the body we have purchased (picture included).

So now we are working version 3. Starting with re-making the whole body into carbon fibre with proper suspension. However non of us have any adequate knowledge or experience.
Of course the goal is to make it as easy as possible with the least time possible since we have more problems to address (programming, electronics, etc.).

Does anybody have any idea how to tackle this problem?

Current robot (as shown in the picture) has size of around 600mm x 400mm x 150mm and weight of over 20kg (approximately 12kg body and 8kg equipment). We have a lot of additional equipment which has to go in, so it might have to be a bit bigger.
