D2 is a brand of suspension makers, higher grade compared with GAB, Koni and Improve. Stuff like TEIN, Eibach and H&W are same grades.

But bear in mind that high low adjustable is not always the choice, for street use you will like driving a boat. Adjustables are good for racing purposes.

buying adjustable is not like buying veg from pasar. you need to know what you want.

the best policy is to ask friend whose car is adjustable and test drive/ride on it.

some adjustable is soft, some are hard, some semi-adjustable some fully adjustable, some can be lowered until 70mm some only 35mm, depends on what you want.

bear in mind, despite loosing comfort, adjustable might be having problem of oil/gas leak. this is a common problem for aftermarket stuff.

after decided which types of adjustable, then come to your budget. good stuff are more expensive as i mentioned above. also carry a thought that maintenance of adjustable also involved.

if you just want to lower your car w/o loosing comfort and not going to race, i recommend you FORGET about adjustable, get normal/sports damper and/or lower spring will do. for lowered spring, STRONGLY recommend Eibach (although pricy), but worth every penny. the rest will not assure you problem less and comfort ride, so far only Eibach is the best choice in aftermarket in Msia.

congrats clkwa, FYI D2 company has been shutdown lately (few weeks ago) at Taiwan. please make sure your dealer can service your dampers. good luck! Laughing

Thanks for the info. they still got uk, usa, china, hongkong, thailand and many more. you can go to the website to check. the dealer can do one to one swap if spoilt in 1 year and they also can service it if warranty expired. Smile

David, Tein and HKS only RM200 - 300 per piece meh? Ok what the price. I am planning to get HWL adjustables. Any other recommendations? Eibach & others are way too costly...
