    Among the three, which is better suited for Daily Driving Under Manila-Type Roads? Yung uneven surfaces and maraming potholes, and across-the-street diggings?

    How much pala do they cost?

    Thanks!

    :D

    Pagkakaalam ko Bilstein is the most road oriented kasi may line up sila for sports cars and such. Rancho and OME makes shock absorbers for off-road and commercial use.

    for city driving,highway and little offroading,i was satisfied with our bilsteins,(LC80),ganda ng handling even in sharp curves. like your driving a car.(although medyo lowered din kce,orig springs naman,not putol)

    for our 4x4's naman that still uses leaf springs,ok naman ang rancho's rs9000 for us.tigas lang at first,matagtag sha,pero when the shocks settle,ok naman.

    we havent tried other brands besides the two,but my uncle wants to try downey suspension soon for his LC80 also.for city driving,highway and little offroading,i was satisfied with our bilsteins,(LC80),ganda ng handling even in sharp curves. like your driving a car.(although medyo lowered din kce,orig springs naman,not putol)

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the input!

    Kasi next year, I need to change shocks na... for the XTRM then the Adventure... am looking around for good shocks para dito. Both have leaf springs. For sure, I'm not going offroading (kasi di talaga kaya ng AUVs), pero I consider Metro Manila Roads as a sort-of offroading din.

    Will my rides improve kaya if I use shocks like OME, bilteins or Rancho?

    one thing is for sure your wallet will be a lot lighter after you change your shocks.

    he he he around 4-5K EACH ang mga budget diyan.

    so 4 x 5K = 20K :shock:

    Pasakay ha pagkatapos mo mag palit ng shocks

    actually if you want to have less tagtag, kailangan pati yung leafspring e palitan.

    the shocks will give only modest improvement not dramatic (as in parang car)

    I don't want to remove the leaf spings... kaya nga nag-AUV, so I can haul heavy stuff anytime.

    Medyo matagtag na kasi ang mga sasakyan ko... magkano ba yung adjustable Rancho shock? Yung 9000 model right?

    i think redeisel is reffering on changing your stock leafsprings into branded ones,like rancho leafsprings or TJM also have one.

    in our case we just install the shocks,ang mahal ng rancho ng leafsprings eh.

    diseler,
    i think rancho rs 5000 will do already for your AUV's
