End up I got myself re002, 225 45 17 x 04

I notice a good thing about having adjustable, least the tyre wouldn't rub on the fender. Least for now.
RE-002? How old are the tyres? RE-003 already out like 1 year already......:confused:

Hi Izso, PRS does only oem shock and their shock? Or they do for other brands as well?

Looking to rebuild my dampers...

They rebuild (to their specifications) any absorbers you give them. Different ones cost slightly different due to the parts differences. Like Teins cost more than HWLs to rebuild.

My 'stock' absorbers weren't stock, they were green and CSL or something like that. Forgot the brand. They broke open the seal, did what they do for the internals (a company secret so done behind closed doors, I didn't see) and resealed with a removable plate and screws. So basically what I paid was RM250 (1 absorber) to rebuild and make it serviceable.

I see..meaning they can even modify the abs and not just to servicing. Great..

Might give them a call and see what can they do for my current shocks.

Thanks.

Not me lah, my friend aka the seller.

I already given up hope on the suspension part..
It's not that serious..

Wanna ask, I notice my engine will stall when approaching to stop at traffic light.
Once the engine stall, I can't control the car nor can step brake.
Was told it was a norm for evo engine, I have to keep revving the engine to keep it alive.
Already told my mechanic to increase the idling speed, hopefully can prevent the stalling.

Anyway, short answer. Engine stall, no more power steering and no more vacuum assist for the brakes, that is why steering heavy so hard to control, and no more vacuum assist means brake got to step harder....:driver:

Haha, better don't. Start too many threads, people like vr2turbo will think it's me, not the car. Thanks for the offer.

Sure or not, stall still can step brake?
I'm on braided hose, jam brake also no use. . Had to use hand brake..

People pull hand brake to drill while I use handbrake to stop

engine stall...service your throttle body and check for intercooler piping/vaccum hose leak....or probably BOV leak
Yeah. Just send my car for full body check up.

Found a few leaks, drive shaft broken again. .
The mechanic, who is a friend of mine. Shared that he had replaced something that will remove the stalling part.

Actually I have this problem for a year since I got the car, it will stall when low idle especially approaching traffic light.

It's probably me, I'm not used to turbo car.. hopefully with the visit to the doctor. Car should be ok by then.

Probably will drive from johor to ipoh then alor star.
Thinking of crossing the border, show off to the thai. :driver:

As mentioned once stalled no more vacuum assist for the brakes, so need to step much harder to brake

How is your suspension setup now?
Just sharing my still painful experience. I was on TEIN HR, rear passengers were pooping at the back seat because the suspension was so hard that they would hit the roof when road condition is bad. So I got a set of Mitsu KYB with lowered spring from halfcut, it was super soft and always bottomed up, I guess I'd damage it in no time like that. After much back and forth ding dong with 2 different suspensions now i am running a weird setup: TEIN HR front and soft KYB rear. The surprise i got, it is out of my expectation because it handles so well but without the bumpiness, and the tendency of understeer has disappeared all together. The soft rear suspension really makes a difference here to overall ride comfort. No more constant complaint from the rear passengers and very nice handling on the highway run. A stop gap measure. As I was looking or rather pondering to replace my ride, i think this setup does the job just well for now. Anyway, I like the TEIN more if not because of my passengers. :biggrin:

I thought suspension cannot differ by more then 25% between them. If yours are super hard front and super soft rears the difference must be a lot.....:smokin:
