erm...a cheap spring wont give u good performance la...

i suggest u get a good brand spring..

but arh...if there's more than 2 ppl at the back...if it drops..then it might not be the spring's fault..coz..2 ppl is the optimum amount off ppl..

yeah...that could be a factor..obviously putting too many ppl at the back will make ur car lower at the back to matter wat springs u use.

Hie bro, the spring plays a great role. If it's a cheap spring, the slope of the graph is low hence if load is exerted, the spring tends to compress more. Some coil springs nowadays (aftermarket or OEM) are not really linear anymore. If not mistaken, they are linear at the first few inches of compression and shots up after that. It can be noticed that the distance between coils varies either top or bottom part. Correct me if i am wrong. Just some cock and bull story. Hahaha!

Change the springs will be the best solution. Putting cussions between them will harm the springs a little because of the ununiform stress and unbalanced load.

im using GAB Springs on my Myvi so far after a few months still no complaint for my end. i think the structure of our Myvi's are like that i dont know if you noticed it before when you just got it first time you will notice it already the front is quite higher than the rear. so if you put 3 big guys at the back you will notice it even more.

my suggestion is better you check it properly as long as the ride and feelings are good then just setle for it or can buy a new one since there are now a couple of good springs out there ( Eibach, Tanabe, TRD Sportivo and GAB ) also can try the adjustables a few are out there also (Titan, HWL and soon GAB ).

You can try and ride my car next time we meet.

I think this one will better that "rubber spring"




The Splitfire Spring Adjusters are fitted in between the coil springs and helps to keep the springs apart during compression. This helps to increase the springs rate as well as reduce the sagging of the suspension system. The ride height of lowering springs can be increased to reduce scraping of the tyres on the fender and any bottoming out of the suspension system.



Key Benefits
Increased Spring Rate for better handling.
Reduce Bottoming Out of Soft Springs
Increased Ride Height when ferrying Heavy Loads.
