The Mines
yeah....

top rank to bottom...(my own preference)

titan
hwl
hotbits


1-titan due to flexibility on setup during installation (in package)
2)hwl durable especially for rally abuse
3)hotbits was reliable name in tuning scene....but price wise i think it was abit on high side thus lower ranking from me :biggrin:

btw...all those adjustable not that hard if u choose the spring stiffness wisely....

titan is not dat super expensive...tein can cost up to rm4k per set...
titan is only ard rm2k ++...so titan is not too expensive nor too cheap.

but i believe TS want the cheaper alternative of adjustables...below rm1k budget.

thus for me...the gud choice wub be:
1)hwl
2)gab

coz malaysian made and abundance of support for aftersales service...

for cheapest can get gab lor....but one of my fren have leaking gab unit less than a year....the default setup was so so only....

best is to go with hwl.....proven in heavy duty offroad as well as rallying.....i saw some ppl selling around 1.2k-1.4k per set (depends on car model)

bro danz, if i'm not mistaken, all adjustable suspensions are serviceable, right? so, how about the maintenance ye? how much if want to service? have any recommended workshop?

btw, i'm using APM adjustable (hi-lo) for my V6. i think my APM also consider cheap one! should give a try la SYeNi69...

HELL!!!
TITAN adjustables with top mount and all the other options should be around close to 4k as well for wira/satria/putra
at least thats what i remember maybe my memory is a bit vague but still best to call them up
a properly set up MONOTUBE is awesome :biggrin:
