Ok last upgrade was adjustable absorbers and front brakes.
I was actually thinking of changing my brakes from the DC2R to something better. Asked about Nissan and also a Mitsubishi brakes. But it won't clear because of my rim offset. So, my mechanic recommended the BB4 brakes.
Needed to change this...
and hope for better braking
The work begins
Old DC2R 96 spec brakes
Wish I could use something like this
But too expensive, no money...
Then, I was just asking my mechanic about the Energy Bushings. He turned and asked why do you want to change your bushings? I knew what he had in his mind at that time.
He asked to just change the absorbers. He said mine is like a boat at corners and too soft. Adjustable absorber was in my list but I wanted to save up more and do it at a later time. But as usual, cannot wait to change, I decided to upgrade it.
My old stock DC2R absorber..
Had to go.
It had to go not only because of handling but because of this too...
4 fingers, that was the gap
See what I mean?
Good bye old absorbers
BC Racing (Not Brian Crower, lol... it's Bor Chuann) BR type
Front spring rate:10kg
Rear spring rate: 6kg
Can't wait to try..
Now time for the rear absorbers
Did I mention, I am using the EK absorbers. So, I needed to change the rear lower arms as well. Decided to go this way more for the bling factor.
Opted for the fake ones. The price difference was really too big.. couldn't afford the original ones. So, gave this a try.
Plus, the colour matches my ride
Haha... making myself feel good about using fake stuff
Anyway, I had to leave for work. So, couldn't take any more pics.
When I came back..
Everything was done. Ready to go!!
My new BB4 brakes with Ferodo Max, Changed my rear brake pads also.
Just joking, now only 1 1/2 finger
That's all for now.
