    Did they remove the last 2 springs (2 shortest springs) & change the shackles?

Haven't riden in one, but it certainly looks more comfirtable at the back than the strada. Btw my strada is the 2001model. Is it worth it ba talaga to get the DMAX considering the price of 1,330,000?
    if not for the bouncy ride, yes it is. i got my dmax for eight months. and sure it was cool. my regrets is that i got the 4X2 variant.

    I inspected the rear springs of the newer D-Maxs which had the Flexiride/Flex plus suspension system a few weeks back at an Isuzu dealership. Indeed, they only had 5 leaf springs on each side, so I had the 2 shortest springs removed from our D-Max's rear leaf spring pack several days ago. The ride is still as bouncy as before. Guess I really have to save up for those OME shocks.

    Congrats on the DMAX. Yup! The dmax is trully bouncy... well, it's a pickup truck so I was'nt expecting anything when we got it... my brother in law got his head bumped on the roof when I went over a small hump on our way to Nueva Ecija. Its that bumpy at the rear sears. We were'nt carrying anything on the back. But unlike our box type strada we got in 97, my back does'nt hurt on long drives. However, its sure darn tough. I went over a couple of huge potholes at hi way speeds.
