Recently changed my shock absorbers as the stock ones started to have sound whenever going through bumps and stuff.
My friend introduced me to this locally manufactured absorbers called Greber. Well i never heard of it before. He said it was quite ok considering that i do not have a huge budget :p
But he did mentioned that my ride will be stiffer and the shocks are harder than the stock ones, so i took his word for it and changed it.
Here are just some pictures i took, okay okay i know my car is dirty :p I have also added this yellow “thing” on my springs, says that it will further cushion the ride on bumpy roads, like pressuring the springs so it does not bounce too much like that. Not too sure if this explanation is correct for that yellow “thing”, but that’s what i remember from the mechanic’s words. Maybe other gurus will know how to explain this “thing” better :p
For the first few days after installing the new shock absorbers, i noticed that the ride was noisy when crossing bumpy roads ! I was thinking, did my friend con me for this ???
So i called him up and he explained to me that these are gas filled absorbers, so for first few days it will be like that. So i believed and went on.
A few days later, indeed there is no more noise from the absorbers, ride is fine now
I haven’t tried taking a corner yet since i have these new shocks, will tell you guys later when i do it :p
