    Default Need suggestion for Mira suspension

    Aoa, I am not finding the front shocks to be perfect and I came through "ghad ghad" noise whenever front tyres go in the bumps and pot holes? But still i am not sure if this the way how mira suspension is? Moreover I am finding them bit hard as well. Kindly suggest me what should I do and for how much i can get hands on a soft set of shocks for daihatsu mira L250 chassis.

    I ve my car installed with spacers in front, may be they are giving hard feelings?

    Remove the spacers and get your steering assembly checked.

    Hmmm... I will look into that but first let me hear some other mira owners first. How the other owners have come across the suspension and has anyone tried changing them.

    The suspension of mira is very hard by default , it feels like a mehran's suspension , it tells u about each and every pot hole in detail ... not sure about the noise , if you mean a clucking noise then it could be because of worn bushes some where

    Its not mira. Its all 660 kei cars i guess. I have a suzuki kei 2005. Rear suspension when loaded with two adults is compressed almost completely. There is almost no room then for the coil springs to compress further. Its not a problem of suspension. I think its by default like this. I also have experienced the same sitting personally on the rear seat of a 660cc alto 2003.

    PS: Can a Pakistani alto/cuore rear coil springs & shock absorbers be installed in suzuki kei?

    Thanks Wasilrkhan & djrock900.
    So is there any chance that mira's suspension parts be replaced with Cuore or charade's?

    @Shariqak1 Yaar you should get the garh garh sound checked but otherwise there is no issue mira has a hard suspension and thats a fact , i asked my mechanic about alto spring he said no they are different in proportions but i dodnt ask him about any other car, btw the old mira's springs were same as our coure so there might be a chance that you could replace with those.

    Finally I checked my car's suspension and found out that it was bushes that were making noise. However this is a fact that mira has got some what stiff suspension. Can anyone tell me some way i can reduce the stiffness of car's suspension? or install something else or KABLI shocks which are comparatively softer than those installed?
