Hi Bros,


Just need ur advice for lowering my ride. Shall i change to coilover or just lower spring will be enough? Btw, just for daily usage not for track. Ever use tomeil coilover be4 on my previous ride, understand the feeling.

1) Was quoted 1250 for BC coilover.
2) Was quoted some germany brand lower sping for 268.

How bros?

Do a search. There are older threads discussing about coilovers and springs.

After u read them, u would probably make a better decision.

coil life spend is short :) and the ride u wont enjoy after 1 year. ( refering to BC)

spring in singapore road total comfort - and the life spend is much longer then bc.

u will be hearing yi yak yi yak sound which is damn irritating lor.

comfort and look spring is gd.
connering coil is better, but here again we are comparing how offen u conner and daily drive and lasting as well :)

price wise is double and u need a place to store the stock spring lol.

hope i answer your question well :)
