Shock Absorbers and Noise...

  • Hi team...
    I'm driving a Grand Vitara 2.0. Milage is 170,00km. I have 2 problems at this moment:-


    1) After my major servicing at Stamford Tyres, I found my right rear absorber is leaking. Not much, but still leaks. What is an advice to change to? I'm looking at KYB for replacement. Stamford Tyres is charging me $800 for the absorbers only (no coil spring) and another $85 for wheel alignment after the changeout.


    2) My front left coil creeks when I go over sharp humps. Is that the absorber with the coil spring as well? Shall I then change all four absorbers and the two coils on the front? Any recommended workshop I can get a better deal in SG or JB?


    Thank you for the advice in advance.
    Umar...

  • Get from Sgcarpart. A KYB Excel G for G.Vitara is only $472. Installation with alignment is less than $100 or even cheaper in JB.

    Check www.sgcarpart.com and they will deliver to u.
    A good tuning car must be something that you can take out to the streets.  The car must be fun, fast and safe on all kinds of road conditions.

  • Hi Chase,
    Thanks for your lead! I eventually bought the absorbers at Yuen Thong Co at Veerasamy Road at a slightly reduced price. Got them replaced at Stamford Tyres with alignment for $100.


    Oh and my front left creeking noise comes from the lower arm which is deteriorating...


    Thanks again for your lead...

  • Anyone uses KYB Excel G absorbers? Is it better than stock? Also does it looks weird with stock or swift sports springs?

  • I think KYB is one of the more reliable aftermarket shocks you can buy. Go for it!
