Hi Sifus,

Is there any way to improve my Myvi's ride and handling like changing the absorbers? Is Monroe producing any absorbers for Myvi 1.3? If they are, is it the gas type, oil type or combined gas-oil type?

Thanks for all replies in advance!!

Regards,
Calvin.

My personal complaint is I feel wobbly like a jelly when at high speeds, and I hate the fact that the jelly is my car coz I never drive slow (except in a jam... hehehe....) Sigh... Sigh...

P2 probably spent little to no time on getting a good setup for the Myvi's absorber & spring combo, as the stock setup feels bumpy and uncomfy. Can u imagine that, with aftermarket lowering springs, the ride actually felt more comfortable than the ori setup! This was actually experienced on my friend's Myvi.

Mind telling what's your fren's Myvi's absorber and spring combo make (brands), pricing and where he/she got it done?

If you dun wanna make it publicly known, message me also can...

I just wanna remove those hard bumps off my absorber and spring performance, but not sacrificing the stability also...

Thanx!!

Regards...
