  1. anyone ever used the brand NUTEQ absorber how is it ?
  2. I just changed 4 shock absorbers (front are Thai made Tokico and rear are japan made original Nissan) for my Nissan Latio. However, I am still feeling that the ride is still not comfortable (can feel every bump on the road). This is the same as before changing the shock absorbers. Anyone know if this mean the new shock absorbers are not good or is there something else I need to change?
  3. Hi All, I would like to get an advice from bro for my case below. This morning, I went to service my car (Toyota Axio) , to check aircon intermittent cooling and normal servicing. But W/S told me I need to change aircon compressor and all 4 shock absorbers (right side at rear is leaking) and lower arm front. Total bill was S$2400.00 (They round it for me). Did I get ripped off by W/S or is the price around there? I have attached the invoice for reference. If I got ripped off, can recommend any good W/S? Thanks in advance.
  4. Dear mycarforum reader, Recently I heard from one of my friend that the car he is driving for less than a year has faulty pair of absorbers. This car is from a high end dealer and is very popular in Singapore. He contacted the dealer and was told that the pair of absorbers will be replaced only free of charge as it is on warranty. What would you do if you are the owner of this car? Welcome feedback. cheers.

  7. Sorry, just realized post in the wrong session. Mod, pls delete the thread in http://www.mycarforum.com/index.php?showto...682392&hl=* Any good place to recommend for aftermarket or original parts?
  8. Hi Bros! Need some advise on where to change shock absorbers for my W169 A Class. My car shock absorbers are squeaky when I go over humps. Car has done around 80,000km. I brought to C&C for regular servicing and they want to charge me $180 to check the shock absorbers (just to check and not do anything!). They also said my undercarriage could be in bad condition and the shock absorbers could cost up to $10K to replace - naturally I declined, sounds way too expensive. Any suggestions on where else I can go? Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi my old trusty Kia picanto may have to renew COE for another 5yrs. do any one know the estimate price to replace the front and back absorber (including Labour)
  10. Been years since I last surf here actively..... Cannot tahan the new car price so thinking of extending existing 06 Latio for another 5 yrs.... The thingy is.... 1) Aircon Compressor gone again (change ard 4 yrs back)..... aircon can only tahan 10mins before it start blowing hot air..... then switch off for a while.... can tahan a few mins before hot air again. no gas leak so, its likely the compressor issue yet again.... any recommended workshop? 2) Shock absorber seems to be gone.... car always dance across hump.... so I guess need to change again... any recommended workshop and reference quote? 3) ikey...... kiddo drop keys while alighting, and I only realise a few mins later..... trace back, and found the key ran over by a few vehicles.... intermittent working, until it decided to totally give up today. I dun mind using the manual key (have 2 anyway), but would like to have a recommendation for 2 way alarms Thank you guys for the kind attention to the abv inqueries ^^
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLtPY06LEhw Sometimes on bumpy road, even with a good shock absorber, it can still be uncomfortable. Has anyone mounted the rubber shock absorber for the springs. Does it work as claim before and after mounting the rubber absorber?
  12. I just realized the rubber cover of the rear absorber has disintegrated . Will it create any problem,? Need to replace?

    Shock Absorber

    My 4 yr old Aveo5's absorbers are feeling horny liao.. currently they are paired with Apex yellow springs. im hoping to change to something that is firm when i need it, yet comfortable to the ppl riding on it. Coilovers are NOT in my list cuz, i really dont wanna spend more than $1k on this change. please input your suggestions and if you know where to get them at a good price. please let me know also! many thanks!
  22. Any good place to recommend for aftermarket or original parts?
  23. hi, sorry that i have to post this, seeking for some valuable advise. my ride has turned 6.5yrs, based on current situation, unlikely to change. i'm using 195/45/15 tire. my absorber and spring are stock, never wanted to spend money on them. at most, adding a stiffer on rear. although this is my personal car, each time i ferry, go over hump or go uneven road. the tire will hit at the wall/sock of the absorber. causing a hold in the sock well, i can make do with the sound but sad to say, it's pissing me off lately. especially when i thought adding a space of 5mm could solved the problem. instead, it only worsen i read somewhere that absorber are the one that usually required to change after X number of usage. while spring are the one that hardly need to replaced, unless lowering the ride. i'm not looking at the option of lowering nor higher the ride as i find it weird looking. do correct me if i'm wrong. in my situation, i only required to change the absorber or spring? (i don't wish to spend much, afterall, it's a B&B ride) i don't wish to change to smaller/thinner tire. please share your views, thank you in advance.
