for my personal experience, adjustable has never been comfortable.

SPRING RATE

"comfort" - 6front / 4rear

firmer - 8front / 6rear

whack corner - 10front / 8rear (warning, HARD)

u can still opted for 5k f,3k r for comfort.8k frt,6k r u can whack corner already.it's all depend on the weight of the car.

usually i don't charge customer if the changes happen under evaluation period.
i give my customer 2 weeks to get used with the abs.for me,usually i discuss with
the potential customer on how he/she likes the ride to be.then i purpose to them
the rate that i think will suit them.for satria gti like yours che det,i'll think 8k-5k should
be enough unless u like to drive around the corner fast.

i really love to whack coner,
even though im not a professionals driver lol ,
now im using 8k , 4k the conering speed has improve but not so much,
i think mb 10k front and 6/7k rear, will settle my problems.
after all it is only HWL.

what do you think mr gt_auto?
next time i will roger u la mr gt_auto.

try not change the spring that ar too stiff for the rear.ur car might skid at a corner.
stiff suppension is suitable for track use only and not for street.

Acctually, I thing HWL is ok..I've been used HWL for 2 year for my kelisa Before that i used GAB..WHL is more practical than GAB..If you want more satisfy, I recommand you to use Cusco HI/LO and SOFT/HARD..More hard but confortable..

not onli absorbers play an important role..other settings like camber,toe in/out,tyres used also plays an important role..adjusting all this settings will effect in the responsiveness for your car. In my experience, i just did some tweaking to my camber and i can feel the difference. Cornering kaki must have slightly negative camber..but the tyres gonna have ware inside more than outside.

8k front and 6k rear..dengar pun dak takut duduk..

hey guys, currently im using myvi HWL adjustable 6k front, 4k rear for my viva..
im planning on changing to stiffer springs coz not stiff enough for me.. my rear feels kinda soft.
thinking of going up 1 notch, like 7k front, 5k rear?
i think 8k front and 6k rear is abit overkill..

btw, what is the cost to change front & rear springs?

My ride Kelisa using HWL MT-1 and my fren Wira also HWL MT-1 we are satify with the ride. comfort and also cornering. Only complain is the high speed compression a bit hard. How fast you guys want to take the corner. Street damper are not supposed to be too hard. Hard suspension will bounce your car out when you take a bumpy corner on the street. Is not track where road condition is flat and smooth. Is it really complicated when it comes to suspension tuning even Ferrari F1 team with a dozen of engineer is having a tough time tuning their suspension setup.

if we go there and get a new spring with certain spring rate, will there be evaluation period where we can change to other spring rate in case it doesnt suit our preference?

my kelisa rear hwl is too stiff when going over bumps on the road at 100 kmh, i can feel the car jumped out from the bump already, feel unsafe coz cant predict the car movement at high speed. plus kelisa very light

hwl seems to gave me the track spec coz i didnt ask for specifics, bought it off the shelf and plug n play. front side can hear "psstt" when going thru bump, indicates abs motion but at the back stiff like sitting on wood, cant indicate the abs motion, probly moving so little due to hard spring

Going through bumps at 100km/h? :stoned:
No one would feel comfortable going through bumps at that speed...usually a person would slow down to like 10 or 20km/h to go through bumps...100km/h seems to be too fast..:listen:

Wira A/B....HWL 8kg f 10kg r + complete UR bars except front member brace, middle member brace & rear member brace. 15x7wheels 195/55/15 :)
Find it just nice. Not too twitchy yet even on high speed bad/uneven corners. But then again, it's up to individual preferences.

wow....rear using 10k spring???


mine previous using 8k front/4k rear on my daily satria.....perfect!....but my other half didn't like it...cos she said too bouncy (she chubby type body bouncing) :biggrin:


so have to resort on 6k front/4k rear......still did an awesome job on cornering and compromise with comfort....

HWL unit... :adore:

chubby? baru puas makan :eating:

anyways, thinking of getting fully adjustable unfortunately hwl does not offer that option. there are a lot of new players in the market such as ZerOne, ISC, BC Racing(taiwan).

all their adverts seems to be of good quality.adds to my confusion.

Used to run 8k f 6k r....the car still felt too tight & pushed a lot during corners.....didn't want to run a larger rear bar....found the 19mm bar quite suitable.....so I opted for the rear 10kg springs.....works well for me :)

bringing this up again with some questions

how do you know what the spring rates are? also, with body height adjustment, if you only change the spring height, wouldn't that make the ride bumpier?

i recently changed to fully adjustables for HWL, and would like some more info before i go back to the shop to get it adjusted. i'm driving daily, some spirited, some fast cornering

i feel my car is very keras now, especially the back, where when i go over a speedbump, there's almost no travel at all.

would adjusting the soft/hard help?
