    Di ba advantage ng Adventure ang mataas? Bakit mo gustong ibaba?

    Kung gusto mo talaga puwede kang magpagawa ng custom. Mahal lang.

    putoling springs is always a bad idea. one problem with putol, is that they do not sit well.. think of sitting on a chair with only one buttock, with the other floating in the air. that's how putol spring sits on the spring seats. it can derail on the first serious bump on the road, leaving you with your car body touching the road.

    imho, the adventure's height is designed for a purpose. this is to carry huge weight.
    bakit kailangan mo i lower?

    and yes, no to putol. been there done that. ride is not that good, damages your suspension components, handling gets affected, etc.

    How about Lowering Clamps? Ok po ba yung instead na magpaputol? Kasi naka lowering springs na ako ngayon na Tein on my Lancer EX 1.6 kaso kulang sa drop lalo na yung sa harap, unlike used sa 2.0 variant ng EX, well it was actually made for that variant e, pero same body lang naman kaya nagtataka ako bakit iba ang drop. Maybe because mas magaan ang makina ng 1.6? Pero may nabasa din ako sa manual na merong 1.6 na may High Ground clearance, hindi ko alam kung nakaganun yung oto ko. Kulang sa detalye yung sa manual e kaya hirap masabi.

    Kaya ngayon naiisip ko na gamitan ko kaya ng Clamp yung front springs ko, madagdagan lang drop kahit 3.4" - 1". Sa itsura niya ngayon parang hindi masyadong nakadrop e. Masama ba itong Clamp? And need pa ba initin ang springs pag ininstall ito? I guess mai-arm lang nila nito sa springs, just tightening the bolts will do to compress eh. So no need to heat, I think :-)

    Gusto ko din kasi may option ako to go back sa normal ng Tein ko para maibenta kapag may pambili na ng Coilover. Do you guys think it's fine considering na designed naman for heavier car (2.0 EX) tong Tein na gamit ko so a little compression would compensate or should be fine?

    Yup most likely kasi mas magaan yung 1.6L engine. Same sa FD, ganda ng bagsak ng dos litros na Civic.

    Benta mo nalang Tein mo kung ok lang. Then swap it with Tanabe DF (if meron available for EX) kasi mas mababa siya sa Tein AFAIK.

    I don't really think the clamps are safe. Never heard of it actually, so malamang konti lang gumagamit. If may budget naman pang-coilies why not

    Bale ito po yung clamps na kinakabit sa springs:

    Chineck ko ang site ng Tanabe sadly walang available para sa Lancer EX. And looking at the specs especially the drop, halos pareho lang din ng Tein. Hay how I wish I had the cash to burn on coilovers.

    ^I think those clamps would just degrade and will introduce accelerated metal fatigue in your springs.


    Di kaya maxado maliit mags/tire combi mo kaya parang bitin ung drop?

    Actually mejo maliit ang overall diameter ko kumpara sa stock ko noon siguro by 1/4 inch. Stock was 205/60/16, ngayon naka 225/40/18 ako. Pero kasi iba talaga ang drop sa 1.6 na variant nito, dahil normally sa gulong na 235/40/18, napakaganda ng drop. Nag 225/40/18 ako pero malaki talaga difference, dapat maliit na difference lang . At merong nag 45 series na kasama ko same variant kame at springs pero yung drop niya hindi pa din kasinganda ng naka 235, normally magrub na yun kapag na 45 series ka pero sa kanya hindi nagrub e lalo na sa rear, dito pa lang masasabi nating iba talaga ang drop samin. Hayy kakainis mahal ng coilover wahahaha Mukhang tyaga tyaga muna ako ah. Naisipan ko lang gumamait ng clamps kasi merong nagbigay sakin sakto 4pcs, pang front ko lang. Kaso mukhang mapapamahal lang ako pagtagal.

    are those clamps safe for road use? they way i see it, the clamps will just concentrate stress on certain parts of the spring, hastening metal fatigue..

    Mukhang hindi siya safe.

    Mukhang magkakatamaan ang clamps na yan at makasira pa sa suspension ng kotse.

    Gnwa ko dati sa civic ko stock SHOCKS at eibach lowering springs. Ayun after ilang months sira engine support, sira shocks pati wheel bearing sira.

    Siguro sa bigat ng mags at sa pag drive narin ehhe.

    Pero ayun ngayon back to stock height and shocks pati springs hu hu.

    sarap ng dalin ang kotse kasi di na parang kabayong tumatalon ahhaha.

    Kaya think twice talaga before lowering your car.
    Looks vs. comfort ang labanan.

    BTW Question lang:
    May suggestion ba kayo magpapalit na ung 98 model starex namin ng leaf spring?
    Nagiisip kami kung surplus lang or itong tiger leaf spring na ang kunin namin heh.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
