Today I changed the springs on my move and decided to document the differences between springs this is what I found as follows:
Rear Spirngs first!!!
Now for the Fronts
So in Summary
- What can you say they come with the car and are supposed to be what the manufacturer thinks we should have within laws etc.
The Malaysian Springs
- They are great for making your car low and I had trouble getting these to be captive in the the front struts. I did achieve it but when I took them out I found that one had jumped and I was lucky no damage had been done.
-So I was saying if your all about low for your car cheap and don’t want to use cut springs and don’t care how the car rides and handles and can put up with a lot of bounce. Then these are the springs for you.
Low Mira King Springs
-These are my preferred choice of the 3 I have tested.
-These give you a little bit of low but not the really cool low of the Malaysian Springs and if you follow mcm shoe guide to low you can still get at least a shoe in there.
- With that being said about the low not being as low as the Malaysian they are still lower than the stock ones and have a much better ride and feel more solid and stable on the road that what the Malaysian ones ever did. I may even be able to drink from a milk carton again while driving.
-If you prefer ride stiffness with smoothness, better handling but willing to sacrifice some of the low or dont care about lowness of the car then these are the ones to go for.
RSR Low Sirion Springs for the front!
This is a new edition as I Just got some, Before putting them in the car I thought I should do a comparison also.
The rsr springs were pretty much the same as the mira low king springs with the same length and same number of coils with the only difference being 0.5-1mm thinner than the mira kings.
The car I have been using for testing is a 1997 auto Daihatsu move with Hyundai excel rear shocks as an upgrade over the stock shocks. Also all of the data and results and opinions are simply what I think and what I have found while doing this and this is intended for information purposes. I am in no way qualified in an field and have just simply undertaken some personal testing and shared my thoughts and results.
I also encourage anyone else to do their own tests to determine what they like and find
