Finally, I managed to have a complete set of Eibach suspension system. This system will make my ride ~20mm lower than the stock suspension. I did not go for the “High Performance” system but a modest setup called Eibach Pro-System.
A simple service this time around. Just changed the engine lubricant and oil filter. Apart from that, I changed the dynamic tensioner caused it started emitting awful noise of something is loose.
Well, it was an unfortunate month for me. 3 strikes in the row, major issues with me missing all the first three Saturdays of the month.
I will divide this article into three parts which tackled all the issues I had in this month.
DIY Level: Medium
It’s about time my braking system requires some tender and care. This entry will only covers the front disc brake only, I will cover the rear braking system on next article later. The reason being is that time was so jealous on me hence I could not proceed with the rear braking system yet. Will do it when time permits.
For this time around, I will change the parts from Brembo disc + genuine pad combo to all around TRW Lucas parts. I could not find a good Brembo deal in short period of time and Brembo brand currently is in the mainstream market thus to find the best quality like two years ago is like finding a needle in the haystack (imitation is on the rise nowadays). Brembo now is made under license from Chinese factory (info not from a reliable source; just a hearsay).
Another service is due today. A 120k KM interval service which includes ATF oil change.
