    Default Suspension help XE corolla 2000

    Hi Guys,

    I have an XE corolla 2000. The problem is that its a bit lowered from back. The previous owner, when installed CNG kit, might have not changed the springs or whatever. Can anyone suggest me should I go for spacers on back suspension or install stiffer springs?

    spacers .... if you install CNG spring .... and drive empty or no one in the rear seat the car will make dhug dhug sound even in a small bump

    I always suggest to get a little harder CNG springs and put spacers.....!!
    those stiff springs always work best....initially they will be quiet hard but after use...they will get normal and probably you need spacers then

    1st you don't need spacers till like 1 year atmost....!!
    depends if you drive car with no load on back then you don't need spacers...
    if you always have 3 persons sitting behind then prolly in one year or so(depending on running) Springs will loose some tension and then it depends on road that you need spacers or not......!!
    i need them after 3 years of use ...with 10k km run per year.....with mostly 2-3 avg people on back.....!!
