i'm not sure whether my eyes is playing trick or not...
but sometimes... wen travelling on road...
i do come accross wira (especially a/b - better view)
where the rear bar (below the body between the rear tyres)...
SOME ARE SHORT WHILE SOME ARE LONG...
izit for those 1.3 / 1.5 / 1.6 diff. size range...
So if tat the case...
NO NEED to modify my wira a/b 1.5 to have the rear stabilizer...
BTW, by placing the front (inside engine) + rear stabilizer bar...
will the warranty be VOID!!!

Anti roll bar is too small to be noticable from far , and it is only
available in WIRA/Satria 1.6/1.8 , Putra. Not on Wira 1.3 / 1.5 . That bar
you are noticing is not anti roll bar . Some modifcation are needed if you
want to install an anti roll bar. You need that gadget , but I don't know
the actual name , looks like a ball joint and the anti roll bar ( I would
term it as rod ) to connect to the rear suspension arm.
Personally I have never tested wira with/without anti roll bar , some one
on the forum may comment on any significant difference between the two

thing do? (tat is obvious to see frm behind..connects both ur rear
tyres..)...haha maybe it improves handling too but to a veli minimal
degree..honestly i have done tat n put another ciplak tower bar in the
engine compartment there too..n i dun really feel any difference..
somehow when i drive my bro wira 1.6 compared to my 1.5..i feel it is more
stable..handles better in cornering..tat time he was using 15" tyres..now
tat i m using 15" i dun feel the stability yet in my car..so my question
is what is the difference? is it the antiroll bar tat is presence? or
different suspension setup? (different springs and absorbers)

nothing and just for show only. Similar effect as puting a brick at the
Tower bar, or called strut bar you install should make some handling
difference, unless the one you install is too soft that it flex when it
is suppose to stiffen the front chasis.
Wira 1.6 comes with anti roll bar (ARB) as mention earlier (perhaps you
didnt read the whole thread) while the 1.5 does not. That why the
handling is better then the 1.5. You need to change the lower arm if you
want to add in a ARB for a wira 1.5 or 1.3.
Some also put in a rear strut bar for their car, but I find that takes up
too much boot space. Prefer to have my speaker box inside.

1) Bigger antiroll bar at the front
2) Antiroll bar at the back
3) Bigger shocks & stiffer springs at the front, rears are the same
4) Stock rims and tyre size, bigger for the 1.6/1.8.
