    Good day mga sir. Mejo gasgas na ang topic na ito bout lowering ur ride. I have used the search functions a lot of times and minsan mejo magulo kc minsan iba-iba ang sagot o advise. Not to mention iba-ibang kotse din ang pinaguusapan. Honda, nissan, toyota, mitsu, etc..

    Mga sir, once and for all. Can you help me and yung ibang member dito regarding lowering ur ride. Here are some FAQs that needs to be clear out:

    1. Kung magpapalit ng lowering spring, kelangan bang palitan ang oem shocks ng gas shocks?

    2. Ano ang pinaka advisable na lowering spring and shocks

    3. Magkano ang retail price ngayon ng mga lowering spring (brand and brand new)? Mas mababa ba ang drop mas mahal?

    4. Magkano ang retail price ngayon ng mga shocks? (brand)

    5. Most recommended shop to buy lowering springs and shocks (with location sana)

    6. Lastly, magkano ang dapat na nakalaang budget kung bibili ng lowering spring at shocks?


    All answerswill be greatly appreciated. Mejo mahaba lang

    1. Doesn't matter kung gas, fluid, etc. As long as you get one in the correct length.

    Sorry, can't help you with the other queries.

    nasagot na ni fafa otep yung #1.

    2. ano oto? pero maganda H&R sa springs.
    3. normally costs around 12k for one complete set brand new. may mga nagbebenta dito sa tsikot classifieds ng mga 8k second hand.
    4. KYB (for lancer) costs around 2200 sa harap, mga 1800-1900 sa likod. gas shocks.
    5. no idea.
    6. assuming everything brand new:

    12000 (springs) + 5000 (front gas shocks) + 4000 (rear gas shocks) + alignment = 21000 + 12 VAT = 23520 +.

    1. Hindi naman kailangan, pero kasi, mas preferred ang gas shocks sa mga lowered na sasakyan. Mas matigas kasi ang ride nito and nasusuppress niya yung tagtag.
    2. H&R, Eibach for springs; Bilstein, KYB Gas for shocks.
    3. Eibach may nakita ako dati, Php15K; Php10-12K for H&R. And yeas, AFAIK, mas mababa ay mas mahal.
    4. Php20K daw ang set of 4 ng Bilstein; set of 4 ng KYB, Php9-12K lang ata. Tein? Nakita ko sa net pinakamura 1000++USD.
    5. No idea (Hongly sa Paranaque?).
    6. Php20-40K siguro.

    1. Better if gas shocks because they are stiffer and reduce your ride from bottoming out lalo na sa humps.
    2. Same as previous posts
    3. H&R nasa 15k. Not necessarily na mas mahal ang mas mababa. Mas mababa nga, sobra naman tagtag. More famous brands command a higher price.
    4. Same as previous posts
    5. Makna Marketing for H&R. Eibach ata sa tyreboy ata meron. Or pwede sa autoindustriya ka magtanong.
    6. Same as previous posts.

    2 inch would be too low IMO...

    1.5 sakto lang, may play pa yung shocks mo para di mashado matagtag.

    walang sukat ang shocks, unless fully adjustable yung kukunin mo. ride height pati damping, pwede palitan. mahal nga lang. mga 50-60k para sa tein.
