Gentlemen & Ladies (If any)...
Any advice on what lowering spring to use on my 1.6 waja without sacrificing comfort. I dont want something too hard which makes it bumpy....like on a roller coaster ride esp when i have passengers. Basically I want:
1. car lowered
2. not too stiff & bumpy ride
3. within RM300.00 (if possible)

Please mates give me help....i'm lost!

well.. as far as i knopw.. apm performax (tctho selling) is one of the cheapest/best budget you can get.. rm 300.. you can buy spring + fix+ chamber+ allignment , very cheap.. if you wants to test it out..
its not very hard, yet,., harder then oem, lowered, about 2 fingers i think.. newed to recheck for waja,

FOR UR BUDGET! APM PERFORMAX!
hahaha or zenden(kent20) if u wants harder/performance one.

ohoho... rm300 is not much 2 spend... but i think GAB springs would be good. its manufactured locally to suit malaysian road conditions... its made for performance, yet it doesnt sacrifice comfort. its worth adding a bit more money for that kind of quality...

dear thread creater,
for lowering, u can't enjoy the same confort as stock springs and stock absorbers as they are soft types...this is 100% confirm...i think all other members will agree with me
sport springs and sport absorbers are harder types, therefore will be more bumpy than OEM...but the pros is it provides more nice look on your fender to tyre gap..and also cornering damn shock...
but if u can affort, go get adjustable which costs more than RM 1,000...as the above ppl said, what you paid is what you get...you can't expect RM 300 to get maximum quality + satisfaction..this is true...

GAP is more expensive than APM....
APM about RM 100++
GAB about RM 300++ depends what car you are driving

yep there is no such thing as maintain same level of comfort after lowering......when you lower....no matter which brand of sports spring the suspension travelling length is reduced bcos yr springs re shorter than the normal ones...& so the bounciness is felt more ...hence the car will bounce....

it will be more embarrasing with full load of passengers in the car....or like when u pick up a guest... in their mind they will b thinking wat the f%*& this car is bouncing up & down...??? dont people buy cars to travel comfortably in ?? hahaha....

whenever i drive a car with stock standard suspension i feel so comfortable & relaxed....when i go back to my own car....its like my whole body is shaking....haha

Yalah, but when you take corner or do some spirited driving, then there's the difference. But then again, Mini Cooper, lowered also, feel much more comfortable and so much less body roll than my lowered Kancil. Aahhhh. I wonder how those BMW feel with those ultra low profile tyres which are lowered so much.

if they use something like koni fsd, its understandable... since the shock rates adjust automatically, according 2 road surface conditions and driving style...
but sometimes, using sports springs doesnt mean that u have to sacrifice ur comfort. really good ones are meant to match ur shock rates and thus, giving u a well balanced handling...

as the saying goes 'good things are not cheap, n cheap things are not usually good'...
