no lobang leh.. but i heard it's cheaper there cuz there are some distributors.

i haven't install but i think i will need to lower a bit, can't stand the big gap between the wheel and fender. lowering springs will be too low, and i don't want it so low as well else i'll be scratching the car at every slope that i go through

Field report:

Went to LCH Bro yesterday morning.. causeway smooth smooth ... Bought parts from Ric Tat and go there change

1) 4 x shock absorbers + wheel alignment
2) 2 x front wheel bearing
3) 1 x front drive shaft boot

Total damage - RM380 and everything done in 2 hours.. sibey song... spend the rest of the day at Paradigm mall jalan jalan + massage + makan.. go back 7 pm plus.. causeway also smooth smooth... Leave is well spent!!

I hv checked the price with a local workshop.. price is S$240 for 1 and 2 (excluding the changing of drive shaft boot as they ask me to go to a drive shaft specialist )

Car is 2007 Toyota Axio with renewed 10 years COE...
Good deal!! Anyone know is axio parts same as allion?

Just go Ric Tat or any Toyota Stockist.. they will know which parts are suitable for Allion. But i think more or less similar to Axio.
