    hello here, any advise lang po sa mga car expert, heres the story: my car is mitsu.lancer pizza, nagpalit kc ako ng rim&tire in bigger size(215/45/17r) & im still using OEM suspension & spring, i've notice na sumasayad sya ng konte sa ceiling fender pag 4 passenger including driver ang load especially pag napadaan ako sa lubak...So the Question is, how to lift OEM suspension or what i need to do in practical way w/o sacrificing comfort riding & lastly how much it cost roughly, my budget is tight....

    First, your tire and wheel size are not to factory specs. and still using the same suspension. 215/45/17 are not much of a big tire for your Mitsu and my guess is that your spings and or shocks are in need of replacement.
    Get a better suspension system like gas struts or coilover, whatever fits on your car.

    Your tires may be too big about 24.62 inches in diameter and wide. I had a 98 GSR with 205/40/17 (23.46") and never had that problem even with 5 passengers and hitting bumps or pot holes. It had stock springs and shocks with 160,000+km on it and not once did it hit the wheel well. However, the front did eat the plastic wheel well until it got chewed up and fell off. Also check you bump stops.

    Guys, thanks sa mga reply..ok lang ba na lagyan ko ng steel washer size 2" ang kapal sa bottom ng spring kung saan nka upo ang spring sa shock kasi naisip ko lang para mag lift sya & besides galing ako sa mga metal fab., kaya naman daw i fab. yung size na yun in good quality & estimate nila it cost me around 2thou. both, ok lang ba sya sa tinggin nyo ang idea na un & ang thickness ok naba ang 2"?..parang ang idea same like the most branded suspension kaso ang adjustment nila is tread & nut lang sila para ma adjust sa certain ht. na lower or higher....or advise nman mga guys kung may idea kayo dyan...

    Kung tight yung budget mo bro, pakabit ka nalang ng lifter sa banawe - rubber lang yun parang makapal na bushing na uupuan nung coil spring. Mga 1k lang siguro aabutin nun pati labor. Goodluck!

    Actually bro., pinalagyan ko na sya ng rubber bushing na sinasabi mo around 1" ang kapal,,kaso few weeks lang nag sag na sya at same problem sumasayad nanaman, kya naisip ko na metal nalang ang pa assembly ko instead rubber na makapal sa existing na pinalagay ko..ang worry ko lang maybe mag cause sya ng ingay or any cause of problem in terms of handling...

    Sayad parin pala ano? Ginamit ko kasi yan sa civic ko pero series55 lang siya na 195, rim 15. Mejo malapad na nga ang 215 for a lancer, IMO. Back to topic, wala naman siguro ingay yung metal washer as long as may rubber na nakabalot tutal sa machine shop mo naman ata papagawa yan. Pero naisip ko lang, diba yung stock na suspension, wala namang rubber na nakaipit jan - metal to metal din naman (coil spring to mounting). Magkakaroon lang siguro ng ingay yan kung maluwag or hindi lapat yung metal washer mo. Handling wise, wala naman siguro problema yan at sa likod naman ikakabit yan. Unless, tumatakbo ka ng 150kph UP - jan mo mararamdaman kung may problema sa handling or wala.

    Your springs will still sag after some time because putting the 2" spacer will cause it to always be under pressure and result in fatigue of the spring. I would suggest getting adjustable coilovers so you can raise it as needed, you can also add a spring with higher compression rate so it doesn't sag as much when you have passengers.

    COST?.....and that you have to do your homework, there are too many good coilover in the market w/ diff. prices. So the exact amount are variant. Good luck.
