Lowered W124 for Stylo
AsSalam Benzers, Jusk seek otai2 opinion either beneficial or not if changing to sports spring or just cutting original spring. In terms of handling which one comfort. I am considering to replace the ori spring with sports spring

My suggestion is to keep it standard/Original. The car was designed to give you comfort. Trust me...

If you need to decide between comfort vs. handling, here is a good rule of thumb compliment from renggrun:

(Quote)

"It all depends on the driver of the car. It does NOT mean if you put on big wheels combo that you're a stylo-milo guy. Not necessary.

1. If you drive aggressively, i.e. pantang jumpa koner, mesti nak sebat/sesah....macam Brotha Mal kita, MatCossie tuh...,you gotta have the optimum set-up for your car. You'll need bigger wheels and low-pro tyres to render more outright grip and also more feedback from the steering.

 When you run Low-Pro tyres,i.e 45/40/35 series tires, your steering will offer more feedback since the tires are 'nipis' to the ground and you can feel everything..sampai puntung rokok pun boleh rasa...!!

 Low profile tire will have less sidewall flex and your car can steer faster and more precise. Thus, you can tackle the corners better. In a straight line fast driving too, your car will feel more stable and the steering feels planted.

2. Problem is, people just simply slap on the big wheels and tire combo without doing suspension mods. PLEASE understand that the fancy/bigger wheels and tires can only work well in CONJUNCTION with an upgraded suspension characteristics.

 The original specs for a car will read suspension designed for a car with 16" wheels and tires at 55 series. The engineers will calculate the damping characteristics of the tall sidewall (55 series) and the wheel size and WEIGHT and all these will be computed and extrapolated to ensure hat the car will ride comfortably and handle okay.

 Now, when someone simply ikut suka aje, pi letak tayar and rim besor WITHOUT doing the suspension mods...apa lagi..melompat2 ler keta deme !!! Apsal??? Pasal, the original dampers and springs are NOT designed to counter the upgraded tires/wheels thingy.... They are esigned for the original specs fitment. Once a heavier wheel (katalah 17/18) and bigger tires, low profile, (katalah 235/245 on 45 or 40 series) is fitted, please remember that the tayar dahlah nipis...bila nipis dia lagi tegang and senang meloncat. Wheels lagi berat, bila berat, loncatan lebih momentum......

 Heavier and stiffer tires/wheels will kasi itu standard springs/dampers kacau lah... So, kena lah pasang spring keras sikit and dampers pun keras sikit. Bila tayar terlompat, spring akan 'absorb' the force and akan naik ke atas 'perlahan' sikit and dampers pulak akan melepaskan hentaman itu kembali ke jalan secara perlahan sikit pasal spring and dampers uprated bisa menagkis serta menahan hentakan dan serapan yang perlu dilakukan.......So, uprate your springs and dampers and fit the big wheels combo if you'd like...Go ahead..make your day. Just do it right and the 'dis-comfort' will be so minimal......So, tuan tuan dan puan puan...tepuk dada tanya selera"
