Some of the concerns that we have when driving a national car is the durability of the springs. To many local cars, such as Viva, Myvi, Proton Saga, Iswara, and Wira, the springs can be considered as too soft. When they are two people sitting at the rear seats, the car will look like a speed boat.
On the other hand, many Malaysians like to lower their cars, and that includes me. So when the original springs are replaced with sports spring, the rear tyres will hit the back fenders thus damaging the tyres.
So what’s the SOLUTION? Well, this might not be the 100% effective but it can cushion the impact of installing lowered springs and also the original springs.
I installed a buffer!
A buffer is made of hard rubber. It will not easily melt due to heat or broken due to uneven road impacts. In Kuching, they sell it for RM120, but maybe you could get a cheaper ones provided that you are willing to spend on more petrol searching for them. For me, I bought them from a shop that’s near my house “LIP GIAT Car Service” at 9th mile, Kuching. The buffer is installed on the spring itself. It will help reduce the springs from going far below when heavy objects sitting on it.
