wahhh.....I haven't use for 1 year and start got sound weh.....
Haiyaaaa........also a common for wira? Lagi haiyaaaaa
Not a common problem for wira lah..
Common problem for all old cars.

Better check properly before changing.
On my Waja, no sound at all but vibrate at certain speed under load. When i release gas pedal, no vibration.

Yes u can change one side only. That is, if u did not discover that the other side oso got torn rubber boot...hihihi.

I just diy change my BLM subframe (too bad i did not take any picture to share ) mount only to also see the rear axle bush oso penyek while laying under the car.

Just now drive my car up to the lorry washing bay.

The way the exhaust set up is only 2 section.
B pipe & tail pipe is combine into 1 section.
Dunno what material is it.

And I shake both of my drive shaft only the driver side is making sound the other one is stable and didn't make any noise.

Wira update.

Juz bought a set of new crossmember bushing,new washer & new nut.
Wait later got free time install them. The reason I change is one of my nut gone missing agn.
From my exp, it can neither be too tight or too loose. Too loose u will lost your bolt. Too tight u will get vibration.

sifu all... what is the the pro and con of changing a lighter crank pulley on a 4G15?
i'm going to change my timing belt and water pump... just wondering shall i throw in a lighter crank pulley...
from my own experience leave it stock. A lightened crank pulley makes it rev really fast and the decelleration (engine braking and all) is drastically lighter. Really annoying mod. All the extra speed revving and slowing down with none of the benefits. It totally changes the way you drive your car and it's just not beneficial in my opinion.

And what 4G15 do you have? MMC LCPs are available but the VDO ones are super duper rare. Plus if you do get the LCP you'll need to get one with a reinforced center sleeve cuz the full alu ones will deform after a while cuz no dampening.
