    sir,

    can u post pictures of ur mods if u have? it would really help me in explaining to the talyer. i own an xuv and wanted to modify my ride too.

    thanks

    Based on my observation (I didnt' measure vehicle height before and after modification) there is only a slight decrease in ride height about 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch.But what is very noticeable is the compression of the suspension when you are fully loaded with passengers - the reason why I fit in the rubber snubber. After that, ok na.

    After the modification, I can feel that the compression and extension of the rear suspension is limited to the up and down wheel movement in rough roads - less transfer of impact to the vehicle body.

    This is just my observation also: The vehicle is better in cornering because hindi masyado komokontra ang rear suspension pag liko.

    Nevertheless, I don't recommend this modification until all safety issues are addressed. That is why I am asking in puts from those who have undertaken this similar suspension modification.

    sir,

    how did you attach the home made rubber snubber to the overload leaf? the one on the website had a bolt on it for attachment. is it possible to drill a 1/2" hole on the leaf and tightly fit the bottom of the snubber into the hole? i wonder how long will the snubber stays on especially if it gets knocked by the upper leafs during heavy load or due to vibrations.

    thanks

    Meron na ba gumawa nito sa REVO? Please post naman your experience. Na-improve ba yung riding comfort? Safe ba? Thanks in advance.
