    my friend had the same issue with you. he asked a spare parts shop, what type of springs should he get (1.5 or 1.6). according to the guy there, he said wira SE should use 1.6 springs.

    when the tire shop tried installing the springs, it made the car even higher. turns out that wira SE uses 1.8 suspensions!

    Hmm..it should be the same..
    But what i know is Wira SE's front absorber is the same as 1.6 except for the springs because the springs is already factory-lowered/sport spring..
    Thats why when u use standard 1.6 springs the height doesnt really match

    wira and satria SE uses 1.6 springs and absorbers at the front. so if u get lowered springs, meaning u will be using 1.6 lowered springs, and i tried APM, it didnt lower my car.

    i opted for adjustables instead. no more worries.

    there are two type of wira se, the limited edition and plain se..limited edition produce only 1000 pieces..this model uses c99 (if not mistaken, meant for 1.6/1.8 engine) chassis and the plain se uses c96 (also if not mistaken..no time to check in the engine bay) meant for 1.3/1.5 application..to get the right suspension setup, look into this first..than tell the sparepart shop which chassis your using..for 1.6 rear spring, 1.3/1.5 also can use..i recommend to use it to save your absorber..it is much stronger and can expand your absorber life and prevent your car from bottoming..

    wira SE comes with front 1.6 lowered springs.

    the reason it become higher with after market sport springs is bcos the stock absorber have higher spring mount like waja.

    if u wanto lower the front.. just replace the shock absorber with 1.6/1.8 aftermarket shocks... then settle.

    seen this problem too many times already.

    khguan,

    you mentioned 1.6 aftermarket shocks is suitable. Is it ok to use gab sports spring 1.6 for WiSE? Im using gab sa with wiSE. But notice that right fron is lower than left front. Im suspecting that the spring kong liao.

    Besides, do i need to change the mounting bush as well?

    Thx

    no problem...

    one side higher it might be the shocks one side not strong enough... or maybe the absorber mounting not good in condition.

    usually i recommend customer to replace the front absorber mounting during the replacement of new shocks.
