the worst in tuning a suspension is.. lembut bila kita mahu keras, keras bila mahu lembut smile_tongue.gif

soft when attacking corners, hard when at bumps n humps..hehe, driver worst nightmare!

Go electronic then...... smile_thumbup.gif , but have not tried any of those smile_blackeye.gif

and... once you drive a 1.8L or 2.0L and above car...
or a rigid body car (conti)...
... don't want to drive any smaller cc car already...
(unless small engine with comparable HP/ Torque to a 1.8L/ 2.0L type)


After u drive SUV, hard to get back to Sedan... smile_tongue.gif

im using GAB ss fully adjustable, n i leave the adjusting lock knob there permanently..play play when i se nessesary..
just my sincere opinion..if u decide to go to the track, then my setup is not d best..
took me 7-8 months to decide which kinda setup suit my driving n family purpose..tein ha,hotbits,gab ha,apm,hwl..all a bit too stiff for me..

actually my 1st choice are
1.koni fsd pair with h&r spring(unfortunetly not available for my car)
2.titan setup..(so far away in kl..and its not adjustable..must pg sana to adjust)

by d way koni fsd(without need electronic aid have the road sensing function) and gab uses avcs(lotta ppl say it dont work..but i berani swear la it works well)

end result..felt nimble,agile but not rigid..nothing i can do to d chassis smile_blackeye.gif

aha~ spot on...i was thinking gab actually...but scared too many imitation....

btw..i just read at tein website recently...that they got 1st place in nurbungring endurance race using tein-flex series....i mean..at bumpy circuit such as nurbungring using street type....maybe its not too hard at all....


-all non adjustable type i don't want..pay high price but can't adjust....huhuhuh...not for track..more for street only....2years plan since that my auto-satria suspension starting to show its age....15years old car already start to senget sebelah u know....sagged spring...


*if go for racing better i choose the best..bilstein....(still got complete set inside the store for next rally car project) smile_tongue.gif

haha same as mine lah 15yo never change suspension system..im on a budget so i cant afford to try n error many time..anyway bro..mine is the cheapest brand new fully adjustable rite now .. bang for buck..what worries me is the durabilty of the gab..and its not cheap to repair..

ok talk about handling and comfort i use my wife as a judge..she is so sensitive to harshness,bump and uneven road,,he can even notice if i pump my tyre more than usual. smile_clown.gif
1.no comment from her about bumping after change the abs

2.before this evrytime i take a corners hard , she will hold that pemegang(passenger side at d roof dunno what is it called)..no she doesnt need to hold it anymore..indicating less body roll
