    IMO, better to get KYB rather than refill sa curven or zee.

    KYB + pakabit sa motorcraft, good suggestion yan.

    kyb shocks are better for me due to the fact that it stiffer and would have better handling. lowered po kasi oto and i like cornering with a little bit of speed kaya i got the kyb na.

    tokico are much softer and closer to OEM specs for maximum comfort. before, i got the tokico yung hindi pa ko lowered and satisfied naman ako sa performance pero mas gusto ko lang talaga yung stiffer shocks as of now.

    kaya ba i-handle ng tokico lowering springs ko? neuspeed greens ata un. un sabi nung binilan ko eh. pero mukhang hindi. nag-iipon na ko ng budget para sa pang-ilalim ko. kelangan ng ayusin eh.

    kung sa kaya ng tokico handle yung lowering spring mo... kaya naman pero most of the time bottom out ka sa cornering. parang you feel na tataob yung oto. hehe

    kaya mas ok yung kyb for me kasi yung lower ako with the tokico, panget talaga handling niya. then tried kyb, mas stable na handling niya.

    check if its the real neuspeed greens, 1.5 drop yan dapat and may dead springs on top. of course the color is green pero hindi dark, then may print ng neuspeed on the springs as well as is its for the front or rear wheels.

    then the package should include stickers, manual, and warranty.

    teka teka, isa isahin natin yung mga questions mo... dami eh... hehe

    tanong ko lang di ba sumasayad oto mo sa malalaking humps like sa mga malls lalaki ng humps dun dba?
    it depends on how lowered you ride is. before, down to the ground yung drop ko (zero gap fender and wheel). now hindi na, i changed to neuspeed greens na for more comfortable ride. yung dati kahit gaano kaliit yung humps kailangan "s" ako para hindi sumayad pero now that the 1.5 drop na lang hindi na ko sayad sa humps unless sobrang taas ng humps.

    kung bibili ako ng shocks anong information ang kelangan kong alamin para maging compatible yung shocks na bibilhin ko sa oto ko?
    nothing really, just the model of the car.

    basically, kyb are gas type shocks and tokico are fluid type shocks

    kung Tokico shocks (fluid) ang bilhin ko para oto ko na hindi naman lowered, yung cornering ko ba is parang tataob o hindi naman?
    its the same feel of cornering as your stock shocks

    kung halimbawang gas type pala yung shocks ko ngaun tapos bumili ako ng fliud type ok lang ba un o may additional cost un sken sa pag convert?
    wala po, basically difference lang ng gas type and fulid type is the stiffness. same specs po yun in terms of compatibility.

    ah ok, very clear un ha, thanks.. balak ko kasi mag pa restore na lang sa cruven, may bagong bukas kasi dito sa place namin sa fairview..e gusto ko lang i-try sana, any experience sa pagrerestore/refill lang ng shocks?... tiningnan ko kasi ung web site ng cruven, very convincing naman and may warranty pa, or i'm just fooled by their website kasi wala naman talaga akong alam about shocks... and one more thing, may lumalagitik o tumutunog sa may harap ko pag mabagal takbo tapos hindi patag daan usually pag nagbebrake ako na mabagal lang takbo dun sya tumutunog, un ba e dahil mahina na nga shocks ko sabi ng casa sken? or may other factors pa? sabi ng erpat ko pa grease ko ung ilalim daw, wat do u think? or repack front wheel bearings?..haaayy hirap ng walang alam..paxencia na..
