Hi to all pro,Im planning to change my civic EG suspension but I don't now what brand can I go for...
Can anyone recommend?

Q1) Should I go for Hard/Soft-Hi/Lo suspension or Hi/Lo is enough for me?

Q2) Will the Hi/Lo suspension too soft or too hard?

My budget around rm1.5k+- hopefully the lifespan of the suspension can last me 3-5years.

Hope to get some reply,Thank you

if ur looking for comfort... then stick to non adjustables...

if ur looking for handling and willing to sacrifice comfort then u should get adjustables...

but 1.5k wont buy u brand new hi-lo & softhard adjustables...only hi-lo....unless u buy used then can get hilo & sogft hard at that price.

then again, dont expect dc2 type r suspensions to perform like aftermarket suspensions. it gives u comfort for sure but not too much confidence when taking corners or at high speeds. i'm using dc2 type r suspensions now but thinking of going with aftermarket ones for better handling.

but i think a DC2-R suspension in an EG should be alright...considering the EG is lighter than a DC2.

only downside is... the car is gonna be high...hahaha

you can get old used tein HA/HR cheap nowadays, send them for service (RM150-RM200 per piece if not mistaken).....and they'll last a least 4-5 years (even more if you dont run into any big potholes)...if you want to save a bit...just service the front abs. first.

myfren, 1st thing 1st it is good to get some info... whenever ur mechanic said hwl doesn't really good?? is he paying for u... just his opinion rite?? u can bought hwl,gab, titan, n what so ever coz this absorber is msian made n easy for u to service/repair after 2-4 years of usage.... don't be bother bout it... so many engineering shop can repair it....
as for me, 1st adj abs that i used is HWL into my dolphin... long last for 5 year without bocor....then manage to sell it in this zth forumer for rm800 (service n repair b4 sold it).... then bought tein....

set ur goal... if wanna get new or used one......

jut my opinion.... still can be discuss.....
