I got advice that GAB suspension is great for price-quality ratio. For the amount you pay, you get back the amount worth of quality suspension system...

I havent change yet, still getting opinions around, but seems like RM1800 is good price. Going to check with RS One soon...

I didnt test much. Was rushing home and then when i call frenz out to yamcha, i kena rejected so sit at home lor.

During the brief period of rushing home, I notice very big difference in handling. Cornering very steady.

As for comfortability, since the suspension is still brand new, I can feel the small bumps on the road. It isnt annoying or painful to my butt but compared to my old stock suspension, which I can feel very bouncy like sitting on a sampan at sea. Bad thing is that now when I hit a really low spot at highway or hit those stupid concrete stones made for lorry go-in-out, my tyres will sometimes hit the fender if I go over them too fast. Otherwise, very comfy.

Nonetheless it feels very solid, but not solid like rock.

All in all, I rate it this way:

Performance = 60%
Comfort = 40%

in a 100% ratio.

welcome to the world of adjustables.. if you want a smoother n comfort ride.. u need a twin tube adjustables.. mono tubes are more for performance n street quick handlings.. some comes with high low only,some with both highlow n soft hard.. the gab u bought.. i think is a local made adjustables, not GAB imported.. imported adjustables are much more expensive.. like HKS,Tien,Cusco.. usually kaki kereta only will spend for such stuff... but.. it is mainly for performace use.. not 4 jalan2 makan angin.. n feel god ur riding on a expensive aftermarket parts.. riding slower usually hurts for most imports adjustables..

however.. imports models adjustables.. can get at chopshop at cheaper price.. but i do not recommend, since it is used n u dont know the condition.. if u wanna repair them u stilll hv to go to local adjustables company.. so means the parts is local.. only the housing n spring are imported.. might as well get a local one with 2yrs warranty or 40k mileage warranty, thats what most company offers..

but the good things bout adjustables.. it helps u maintain ur speed at extreme corners.. means u feel safe n confident to ride faster on turns.. even if u dont have a powerful engine.. u can negotiate corner better than converted turbo car on stock shocks....

to me.. handling department is as important to power/engine displacement..
