1.2k RM ? Why not use that you money to re-do all that bushing in the rear for a better feel of the road . For the age of the car ,the bushing would be most likey broken .

No, i am not saying that . I am saying that most FDs on the roads here and in malaysia are already going on 10yrs old. And the 1.2k RM could be used to make the FD more reliable first . Than moving on to modifiying her.

Perhaps you can try glen's combo, koni shocks + TEIN springs. Phat7 is that your combo too? Heard is very comfy...

anyone knows where to get stock shocks and what aftermarket shocks give you as good ride as the stock ones?

me too.. thinking what to get... i'm having a set of stocks... bushes and rods and valves were over-hauled and fixed.

i have my rear ones fixed... end up now the ride is smooth.. and quite stiff...the front ones are still stock...

when encounter an air pocket, i'll hear the tyre scratching the mud guard. :)

Well anyone knows wat shocks are similar to stock shocks? I want a comfortable ride PERIOD. Not concern of drifting, racing or cornering, just comfy ride.

similiar to stock shocks....
over-haul it... you will get back stock shocks comfy ride + some stiffness of new shafts and seals and valves.

if your pocket is thick enough. HKS shocks are comfy.... hybermax if i'm not wrong. (is hypermax an exhaust?)

Hipermax is pretty competition, they won't be as comfy
