    mga sir and ma'am, sulit ba yung R1 na coil sleeves and other brands like it? 1"-4" daw adjustable yung ride height... good value for money kaya? they're selling it kasi sa mayo parts ng Php 7,000... and I have a slightly tight budget...

    before balak ko din tong r1, pero sabi nila sobrang tagtag daw nito. better invest na lang sa branded.

    gumamit ako ng R1 lowering springs before (hindi coilovers ha), feels like riding on a go-kart. parang walang shocks yung oto. hehehehe.

    tinangal ko na lang ulit at bumalik ako sa stock.
    i'm sure mas matagtag ang coilovers.

    r1 coilover sleeves user here before... astig talaga yung coils na yan basta tama yung install kasi kung magkamali, lumalagatak yung tunog sa lubak.

    ganto lang yan, if your after the looks, ganda niyan papi, bang for buck. dati 0" gap sa harap then 1" gap sa likod. ganda ng tindig ng oto ko, yun nga lang medyo matagtag siya. if you can handle then bumpy ride, ill recommend this for the looks and handling performance. hindi ka bottom out sa cornering.

    used it for 3+ years bago ko palit and masakit pakawalan yung springs.

    pero if your looking for a decent drop and comfortable ride, you'll never go wrong with neuspeed green (kung honda yung oto). yun nga lang, mas mahal SRP 10k - 11k set.

    2 reasons i changed springs to neuspeed green
    1st - tagal na ko inaawitan ng pinsan ko na benta ko sakanya
    2nd - gusto ko na decent drop and hindi matagtag.

    its up to you, kung ano kasi goal mo sa lowering.

    r1 is pretty much the worst suspension brand you can buy from what i've seen.

R1 and other coil sleeves, sulit ba?
