Hmm... maybe you are right this way. But just a final thought without further discussion on this matter is how could that be? I am only 80+kg, could Accent be that weak?

From your question is more related to the weight of passanger uneven load to the suspension to made one side of the car more sinking down.

Speaking of tyre suspension, have u guys ever notice that if you are an heavy person the car visually or optical illusioning my sight that the driver side will be more heavy and felt like bend over the right side from rear view.

Its normal for every car. It is because you seat at the driver side and the load force is apply to the front right suspension. So as logically spring will be getting lower when load is more heavier. So the front right spring will be lower than others hence the car is bend down to a side. Wink

Hmm.. Can be said yes. But i suggest you might change to a harder stifness spring will do. But it will cause the car more bumpy. Crying or Very sad

Me thinking to put on strut bars to help to preserve absorbers, springs and suspension as well as tyres.

Struct bar won't help too much of that. It main feature is to prevent the chasis to twisted and reform a frame work for safety. Wink

For your situation, I suggest you to change the spring to harder stifness will do. Maybe you can choose the entire complete set come with the adjustable absorber. Wink

Keong1981, IMHO Accent suspension is consider good enough, front is using MacPherson and 4 independent suspension coil.

I bet we have problem to identify the quality and grade of outside one with stock suspension.
