If your car is a popular model, buy from Taobao and ship over. I got mine full set around 6 pieces CUSCO grade for less than SGD$200

Mileage about 10K up lorry Liao.
That’s why I always bring my own parts from sg.

That time thought okay to use Malaysia parts.
Sian sia really dangerous to buy parts from JB stockist.

My KBY shock absorbers changed in LCH brothers also squeaking in less than one year. Agree is better to buy sg parts

Hi, I read some ppl mention hawk type. I whatsapp them for sevicing package and they gave the one below

hawk.jpg


But doesn't seem cheap. I compared with technicautocare - anyone heard of them?

http://www.technicautocare.com/servicingpackages

technicautocare even seems cheaper for the Castrol Edge Engine Oil 5W/40 - S$98 vs $RM337. The things they check should be roughly similar, although I didn't read carefully.

So in that case, not worthy to go in JB, although I'm going in 2 wks time.

Buy your fav EO and filter in SG. Bring it in to get them change for you. Simple EO and filer change service, most workshops can do.
Labour in jb range from RM 30- RM50
Labour in SG range from SGD 35......onwards.

Choice is yours dude...:s13:

I figure your stock springs were shouldering some of the load. Be careful of potholes :o

Yah bro stock spring was helping the weak rear absorber.
Think must find time go stockist buy and bring to CarClick.

Any effect of still using the weak absorber on lower sports spring ?

Rear tyres uneven wear ? Or spring will soften more ?

Off hand I recall worn shock absorbers affect handling/braking distance and may put added strain on other suspension components. Over time tyres will have cupping/scalloped tread wear if suspension component is worn/bent.

I just found this article, quite informative with regards to shock absorbers-

Side track into fake ringgit.

*Hearsay, there are certain amount of RM100 notes(in particular) flowing in the market?

So my concern is if it wise to change ringgit in JB still?
Anyone have such concern?

*For discussion purposes only, my hearsay maybe incorrect thou.

I seldom have 100 notes cos I always asked for 50s. RM100 and RM50 looked the same to me(colourblind).

If you do notice, cashiers will check for counterfeit only when you use RM100 but not for RM50
