    why can't this be avoided? everyone I know who has lowered their cars share this common problem.

    putol man o aftermarket lowering springs.

    why o why? :?:

    can't any shop do this right?

    guys, please post naman your comments on your lowered ride?
    please recommend na rin reputable shops coz i'm planning to slam my new Altis.

    thanks!

    Baka sira na shocks kaya even if you install a good aftermarket spring... ayun the car is riding only on the springs causing that racket

    A-Boy,

    hmmm... check the bushings baka worned out na.

    Describe mo yung ingay. Did you cut your springs?


    my car is not that slammed pero I got H&R springs which gives my ride a 2 finger gap all around.

    as for a shop... I would recommend contacting Auto_xer. E-mail him about springs available for the Altis.

    Here's the e-mail ad.. Auto_xer*yahoo.com


    IMHO, Drop that Altis na kase the Altis ride height is too high... the ground clearance i read is 180mm pa.

    thanks for the info dude. wala bang kalampag oto mo?

    my friends kasi, may isang gsr na putol 1inch-bawat hump or lubak, may kumakatok sa likod. meron din namang 95 accord na naka 1.5" drop using merwede springs, ganon din sa likod.

    altis has 180mm ground clearance--->wala akong comparison dude. can you tell me kung sa stock SIR or sa stock 2003 VTI ano ang kanilang clearance?

    ano ba yung safe clearance para di pa kailangan mag snake move sa humps?

    I had my current car lowered. Even my previous car was lowered. I don't have suspension "knocks" problem.

    You might want to check your suspension bushing and shocks if they are worn out though.

    mga 153 mm (6.1 inches) yata yung ground clearance ng civics... (yung altis figure of 180 mm converts to 7.2 inches... parang sobrang taas ata? tama ba yung figure na yun? that's higher than the min. ground clearance of some SUVs already)

    Wag ka na paputol, masisira lang shocks and suspension mo...... hihina kasi yung springs mo eh..... :D
    Actually lahat ng bushings ko bago eh halos lahat ng suspension parts ko sa harap bago kaso may kalampag kasi naka 15" mags ako baka puno ng hangin? basta pag lubak eh parang sobrang stiff ng suspension ko or yung gulong? basta ganun? ewan ko kung panu reremedyohan! :x

    relatively bago pa lang lowering springs and shocks ko kaya so far wala pa naman ako kalampag na naririnig.

    Yung naririnig ko sa likod pag sobrang malaki yung lubak meron sound na solid "thud" pero sa tingin ko di naman kalampag dating nun.
