1.5 wira can use 1.8 wira's absorber.. front and back..

but cannot if other way round(except the back).. because 1.8 engine is heavier than 1.5.. so it's not suitable to use 1.5 wira front absorber on 1.8 wira

the rear.. no problem.. almost the same weight at the back

it's got nothing to do with brakes by the way

ok

Bro,

Wira i.5 if you want to use 1.6/1.8 absorber, for the front must use 1.6/1.8 springs and 1/6/1.8 top mount. 1.6/1.8 front springs bigger in diameter compared to 1.5 front springs.
For the rear ones no problem, Waja rear absorber also can fit to Wira 1.5.

thanks for all the reply.

im asking this becoz my current absorber leaking already. im planning to upgrade to 1.8 absorber (kayaba RS).

this is also done bcoz by the end of this year, i will convert to vr4 engine.

so, can this 1.8 absorber withstand the vr4 engine?

and one more thing, 1.5 using 1.8 absorber is plug and play or not? no need modify anything?
