Isee isee, whats the damage? and is there a big improvement to the ride? Just wondering. Just changed my stock tyres to Han**k. feel that handling improved but dunno is because of the fact that tyres are new or i got a better set of tyres..

Jeep Chee done was around $400... Improvement I would say a bit that u wun feel so wavy when u enter a corner. Lowering spring wun do much impact in cornering, is only that make your car look lower and nicer. For SX4 I can say is either u go high like off road SUV, or u go low like low rider.
Tyre is jux a grip to the floor and also maybe the tyre is new and soft so it somehow absorb some or the impact that make u feel better handling.

Espiler costs around $400 and it's more comfortable than Tanabe as the spring rates r lower, not forgetting that they lower by 40 mm in their specs.

However, the waiting time from Stamford tyres can be long.

I may be ordering KYB SR Special shocks as they are shorter to match my Tanabe. My shocks r close to 3.5 yrs. Time for change.
