    It may not seem like anything's wrong over metro roads, but go out to the provinces, and the differences will be obvious.

    Many old 90's compact cars already had very soft shock absorbers... cutting the springs would make them fail even faster...

    Take it from those who have been there, done that... cutting the stock springs makes for terrible handling (wouldn't notice it on the L3... those handle like crud, anyway... ), poor bounce control and eventual shock damage.

    Use proper lowering springs... and spend the extra money to also buy upgraded shock absorbers.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Mas maganda ang lowering spring . Iyong putol kasi pag tipid mods Pag maigsi kasi spring tumitigas at hindi na ito makapaglaro kaya madaling sisirain ang shock absorber mo at dahilan rin kaya matagtag . Mas maganda kung adjustable coilover ilalagay mo.

    Not advisable lowered car sa mga roads natin. Look at the road ruts, bumps, humps, potholes, floods, etc. Do you think your lowered car can handle and withstand these? Much better naka body lift. Lowered cars are only for thec race tracks. Better have your budget on other car maintenance items.

    mga sirs at chiefs

    im advicing you not to cut your stock springs to lower your tsikots by doing the shortcut ways, guess what ako ung been there, done that... na sinabi ni chief niky. and guess what again, sobrang matagtag ung tsikot ku, lalu na nung tumagal parang 'di na nagpplay yung shocks.. taken from what sir speed unlimited said... "Iyong putol kasi pag tipid mods Pag maigsi kasi spring tumitigas at hindi na ito makapaglaro kaya madaling sisirain ang shock absorber mo at dahilan rin kaya matagtag ."

    un lang po masasabi ko sir =)

    Gud Day mga Sirs/Mam, Been lurking in tsikot forums for some time now reading a lot of tips from the experts.
    Medyo newbie ako pagdating sa mga sasakyan, and I've been hearing about this "putol" lately sa mga kalala ko pati na din sa talyer. Tinatanong nga nila ako kung putol yun sa tsikot ko, di ko naman sila masagot dahil di ko nga alam.

    Paano ko ba malalaman kung putol yun sakin? Anyways, I'm pretty much convince by the experts to avoind "Putol".

    TY in advance for the replies

    may nabibili bang lowering spring na pang front lang?, yun kasi ang balak ko since lagi naman may angkas yung tsikot ko, panget kasi tingnan yung oto pag may angkas na, nakatingala kasi.
