Bumps in the way: 2005 Wira Aeroback 1.5SE

POSTED BY admin ON 16 July 2013

I OWN a 2005 Wira Aeroback 1.5SE fitted with original 16-inch rims. When fully loaded, my car tends to hit the bumps. All absorbers and springs are OK. Can I change all the bushes of 2-inch high to solve the problem?

Reply: Normally the suspension should not hit the bump stops when fully laden unless you are driving over bad roads. I think the better alternative is to use uprated springs and shock absorbers which would handle bumps better. However, with such a set-up, the car will tend to be bouncier when partly loaded. But then, you cannot have some gain without some loss!
