Your calculations may be correct, but I think the comment about your shock absorbers holds the key. With a given shock absorption ratio, your body, seated comfortably in the cushioned seats of a late model SUV, may in fact unbeknownst be traveling a distance greater than the wheels. That's why a lot of desert visitors who drive plush SUVs don't appreciate the roadways.

But I believe that the old fashioned stiff chassis and seat springs allowed a body to jounce vertically the relevant component distance so that it all came together satisfactory.

So fear not!
