    I haven't tried that and I will never try that.

    I'd rather buy "brand-new" shocks, kahit na sabihin pa nila na reliable/accurate whatever, still I will never try that.

    IMHO kung totoo man na pwede i-refill ang shocks, and if you look at the structure of the shock absorber, compromised na ang integrity niyan once binuksan ang shock absorber and that's dangerous.

    IMHO lang po.

    Not good, sinubukan ko na twice. Tigas ng ulo ko di pa kasi nadala ng minsan. Tumagal naman sya ng isang linggo bago tumagas ulit.

    Kung pinambili ko na lang ng KYB, may reserba pa sana ako.

    Pero kung gusto mo talaga subukan, maraming tumitirada nyan sa Banawe, malapit sa isang tire shop E. Rodriguez side. Karaniwan bebentahan ka nila ng 2nd hand springs para daw tama sa lambot ng gawa nila.

    not actually dangerous... kelangan mo lang talaga ng trusted shop for that and also hingi ka na lang ng warantty like for example ilang bwan tatagal para atleast pwede mo pa ibalik kung sa ilang araw lang may problema na kaagad

    if your using a corolla 89-90 you can refill the front shock with power strearing fluid. dont use ATF. and it has worked. my corolla has ran 200T+ km and im still using the original front shock. but if your shock are the sealed type. don't bother. you can check out zafra motors in bautista street in makati. thats were i had mine done.
