Super7, if you personally look at this brand absorber and compare with
more of the OEM or aftermarket absorber, you will found it very high
quality.

My car(non perodua, but wira 1.3), used to install improve lowering
absorber and improve for one week, after that I change to their gas
absorber(with JPN 1.3 front spring and 1.6 rear spring), I give up the
short stroke improve suspension because its rear part too soft cause my
15" tyre scrath the rear fender and because of too soft, it hit my car
bottom whenever I in and out from my company car park.

The gas absorber I am currently use is very very good in terms of
handling and confortable, it reduce body roll significantly, in normal
road it also give a very confortable ride

Is Improve absorber available for Kancil too? My friend told me not to
get Monroe anymore as there are lots of fake ones and now the quality not
so good too. He advised me to get APM instead. How's APM compared to
Improve?

from what I heard is if you car is light(like kancil and kelisa), stock
absorber is the best, cause from what I heard is those light weight car
installed with harder gas absorber will "jump" and bumpy on uneven road.

Yes I agree with garycct. The quality of monroe abs is very bad. I've used
before but not on perodua. After installed it, I can fill that, the the
ride and handling getting worse and after a few month, I can hear cluncking
sound. After that I change back to ori one, and satisfied with it..

I don't think the monroe is really that bad. I've been using for more than
1 year and i would say it is awesome. Better cornering and the car does
not shake too hard. Emergency brake oso improved. I think the cluncking
sound was due to the misaligned abs's spring (pls refer to other thread).

I actually was very close to getting GAB shocks and springs for my Myvi.
Very good feedback from ppl who have changed. The floaty feel and bumpy
ride eliminated after the change to GAB. Read up on GAB, it`s German
design produced under license in Malaysia. So price very reasonable,
$1500/- for a set of 4 units.
