My rear axle has been giving sign of failures since early this year. It has been worsen since then that I could not bear the clunking noise anymore. Looks like a complete rubber bushing replacement is needed but I opted to replace it with a better specifications.
Well, this will be the second round of absorbers and wheels combo replacement for my Pug. The first round was the combination of Eibach Sport Kit with Michelin Pilot Sport 3… and with Bridgestone Potenza Re003 midway due to excessive wear on the front pair. Wheels rotation has been completed and it’s due for a complete replacement.
150K service due and apart from usual engine oil change, I’m going to replace the transmission oil and some rubber bushes at the front suspension system.
Finally, I managed to have a complete set of Eibach suspension system. This system will make my ride ~20mm lower than the stock suspension. I did not go for the “High Performance” system but a modest setup called Eibach Pro-System.
