Guys, I need your help. Anyone of you tried the absorber above ? I heard that the Satria Gti absorber can fit into Waja. What absorber is Gti using as stock ?

Please give some comment on various brands of absorber as well. How about Sach Advantage ? Anyone tried ?
I am planning to change all my 4 absorbers but the budget must not be too high.

Sachs absorber should not be too expensive. Saw the advert but performance i dun know. Is your car waja? Y not go for Proton when they have tuned it so well. So many waja owners say one ar..not me ar...
Well sgti uses KYB but architecture i was made to understand is different. Heard like double rings or lifters. Maybe Sifu lik LLsaw can explain.

SGTi is using a diff formula provided from Kayaba to Proton as OEM. Unfortunately, the mix doesn't last, you will see MANY SGTi's which are 'sinking' and needs absorber replacements, but most of the owners don't know it, coz to them..."lowering" mah...the lower the better.

The Gas absorber traditionally was made as an aftermarket part therefore consumers who wanted replacements wanted the shocks to last, hence Gas types. Also those days, most cars had only special absorbers that comes with the car, but with the inception of proton, even the original stock absorbers are available, but it will not last. New cars have softer absorbers to give the customers a "floating" feeling in order to buy the car.
