    Bought the local version of this from a local Auto Supply at 130 pesos (4pcs*130 only)

    2 spacers opposite each other will approx lift rear suspension 1/2 inch, 3 spacers in triangular paths on the coil will lift 3/4 inch. Depending on your daily load, use only 2 or 3 rubber spacers for each spring. Remember to remove these modular spacers if your claiming warranty defects of the suspension.

    Rubber Spacers will not last over a year, but for a hundred thirty pesos I can always change it every 6 months co'z it's till cheap. Many brand of cars have the same problem including top Japs brands this is the quickest remedy without you removing the entire spring assembly voiding the 5 year warranty.

    Observation: Better than O-sulee in terms of price difference which share the same principle of restricting spring motion. Resulting rear suspension is much more sturdier and higher compared before.

    Sir yung O-sulee nakita ko din before and comparing it to this one parehas lang rubber although medyo maganda tignan yung o-sulee at may kulay and will last about over a year. This rubber spring booster naman maybe about six months. In any case sulit pa din yung rubber thing kasi kahit 4 na beses pa ko magpalit in a year makatipid pa din ako ng P2,000 plus. DIY naman yung rubber spring booster just jack up the vehicle and place 2 facing each other or 3 in alternate.

    Nice makeshift. It's the same thing you use when you find your car low enough and would want to lift it up a bit for " practicality's sake "

    Papano pala kung nag full extend yung one side na spring? Like when going up a ramp sideways.malalaglag yung spacers? Since naka ipit lang siya sa spring

    Actually given you have to replace the rubber inserts every six to 12 months, this is not a solution. It is more like a temporary fix than anything else.

    will changing the shocks solve the problem?

    i agree with ghosthunter, hassle din yan parang maintenance every 6 months or every year.

    If it would stretch & extend all the way up, as in almost good enough in lifting the tire this might come off...
    Yung O-sulee din naka-ipit * 2,500, yan din naisip ko dati kapag nakalas medyo masakit sa bulsa kung o-sulee ang gagamitin ko so I decided to use these rubber spacers para ok lang din kung mawala but's it almost 3 wks na, still intact.
