Currently driving saga fl, used to drive with sport springs with stock shocks, and it’s rubbing my driver side’s fender badly , so if I upgrade to adjustable suspension will I get rid of this rubbing issue ? Any experience of driving a car with coilovers set?

yes, it will get rid of rubbing issue if you change to coilovers. Usually coilovers have stiffer damper setting and springs.


As for experience, it all depends on what brand and model of coilovers you are planing to get.


also, what are your rim's offset and width? it might not be the suspension issue, but your fitment issue.

It's the rim fitment and offset issue, changing to coilover wont resolve permanently, only make the ride more harsh.

Only driver side ? Passenger side not affected ?
If only one side definitely something wrong with the fitment process.

Should check with the offset of your rims.

Adjustable suspension will not solve your problem unless you set the height of your suspension to the high side.

yes u can avoid it but it will be a bit bouncy if you didnt setup the preload correctly, most pasang tinggal shop just setup without preload thus the sagat issue is worst than before.

make sure u choose the right spring rate for saga 5k 3k would be enough lor.

Mostly fender rubbing is due to rim offet and tire profile.. but to avoid that you can try use custom stopper which will cost you less than rm150..

Used it last time when using 16 inch rim in saga flx with lowered spring.. no sagat but have to drive slow when go thru bump..
