Hahaha, i remember i had an absorber problem. it occasionally made "thunk" noise. The problem was, the moment the car was lifted off the ground it will be ok for 2-5 days at least before it "thunk" again. i went to the shop like 3x. The third time the pomen said this time test drive first before lift it on the lift stand. Sure enough the 4mths left absorber.

These noise issues are most annoying when it doesn't replicate the prob at the workshop.

im not an almera owner, i drove a forte.

i end up spending around 2k, coz at start thought is absorbers problem, and the absorbers already used for 7 years, so i changed all the absorber, then the problem still there, after troubleshoot, change the bush, i think the bush less than rm100 original parts. Then after that i have a faulty abs sensor (i suspect the foreman damage it when changing the absorber). Beside that, i also changed my all my lower arm rubber bush.

KYB excel-g. I think it is a batch processing thing. it has been 3 years already. i think they rectified it. Anyway this absorber is not comfortable. probably upgrade to RS ultra or something. im planning to change to RS ultra soon. still searching for a cheap price.

For Almera, just use back the original shocks. I found it to be the best in terms of comfort and handling.

KYB Excel G is a rubbish absorber.. avoid at all cost. Very harsh and not comfy.

I not sure wor.. if you go Nissan, they will replace the original shocks for you right?

I feel that TC shocks will be harder than the original Nissan shocks.

Reason I said so was because the 2013 Almera had a very balanced and comfy shocks.

Newer Almera shocks feel a bit harder to me.
