hi, lowering spring like Apex, Tein, JIC are not adjustable in damping & height cos they are jux springs.

If u r lookin for fully adjustable suspension, it's Coilovers tat u r lookin for.

I just sold my tein lowering spring off few months back , truthfully personally i don like the feel of lowering spring it really is just a look enhancement but not really performance :)

keke , if given a choice back then to choose i would rather to spend on the coilover rather than spring :)

lowering springs lower your ride but torture to your stock shock absorbers. be prepared to replace them earlier than expected. coilovers good cos can adjust height and the absorbers able to take the height adjustments. heard though tat it affects the rear chassis integrity or something like tat and have to put brackets to overcome this prob. correct me if im wrong.

I'm on Apex with stock shock absorber, got it from Performance Motor.
About the shorter shock life span, I'll worry about that later.
Right now I'm enjoying all the corners that I encounter. I should have installed it earlier :)
Man.. it feels like driving a remote control car when u dive in for the corner.

Yea bro, but after ur absorbers chui, ur car will become like a low-looking taxi, bouncy bouncy bumpy bumpy, like mine now haha. Would go for coilovers if given the choice

hahaha.. you make it sound so exciting and adventurous kekekeke.

besides going for coilover.. i have 3 options to go wif the spring

1) bumper retainer / spring stiffener

2) bumbstop / click on - http://www.apexsuspension.com/gb/index.php?page=bumpstops

3) change suspension KYB / KONI - which ever is cheaper.

Bro, apart frm changing springs, have u ever tot of doing compression on ur original kit/springs. Dats what i did to mine. Ride lowered, yet still has the stiff impact as the turning coil on our original springs is slightly more(about 1 or 2 more round coils, compared to aftermarket ones). On top of dat, u can add the stiffener if u want it to be really hard and stiff. Cost saving yet effective. Juz my 2cents worth.

btw if u guys r thinking of chging to coilovers, do note that the coilovers needs servicing too and it aint cheap!! Springs are juz for looks and the comfort level is way off from stock!! n i m on the same spring as Darkwolf n enjoying the ride....

No worries, bro. Done on all my previous ride. And of course, by my trustworthy expertise.

Ai Sui Mai Mia... no choice, the stock is too high, makes it feel like driving a van, no $$ buy coilover, so buy Tien Springs, feel like in a bumper car at Pa Sa Ma Lam everyday when driving my lancer now, but well it looks good! :P

Yea bro. spring is a budget alternatives, performance wise may not match up coils but somehow or $ saving perks do match up. Well shock absorbers may worn out faster but by the time it worn out. it is also time for a new one. :cool2:

to me it is just like pumping 95 vs Vpower. U get more "power' and millage but hee over long term wise, the savings = you can pump more on 95, thus cover back similar millage gain from Vpower.
