    Hi all,

    I own a Mitsubishi Lancer 1995 model and always got a problem with shock absorber and suspension.I'm thinking of changing it to sports absorber and sports spring which can stabilize the car when cornering and also any recommendations on any brand of sports absorber and springs?

    Thnaks

    going down the more expensive route of going for coilovers ( shocks and springs combined in 1 unit ) as this would allow you more custom setup. ie you dont want a 50mm drop when you live in an area with bad roads or speed bumps. as well as most coilovers now allow you to adjust the dampening

    as for brand it would be more a case of finding out what over people have used on a lancer. some brands work well with one car but not as well with another

    Yes, might as well looking for coilovers.Back in my country, there's alot of speedbums and also its adjustable to fit my driving criteria.For now, hope to hear from Lancer owners to give opinions on the brands.

    Thanks

    Koni adjustable shocks or tein with adjustable dampening are the best I've come across. I think it is a false economy to get preset shocks you really want to play with different settings and see which matches your driving style.

    Koni adjustable absober or coilovers are really expensive.But i hope it worth it for its price and performance.
