I plan to change the rear absorbers.

Is it true the original ones are Kyaba? Are there other better longer lasting brands?

What sort of price range I'm looking for a pair of absorbers for a kelisa?

the ori shocks is from Kayaba but it is not gas, got mine change to Kayaba Excel G which is gas and much better than the ori ones. even the shocks is bigger than the ori version. bought for RM55 each. plus RM30 for labour

How does the ride from the Kayaba gas compared to the ori stock oil absorber?

Is comfort affected?

I've finished replacing the ori rear shock absorbers on my 04 kelisa. Surprise .. surprise .. the ori ones are not Kayaba.

You can see the APM markings and the other pic shows the the word Tokico. APM is known to produce absorbers in collaboration with Tokico.

Maybe not all models of Kelisa were fitted Kayaba rear absorbers? I wonder what the front absorbers are? dry.gif

By the way, how do you make the images bigger?

the one i'm using is, the tube is slightly bigger than the ori ones... much better than ori one and it's not that hard so comfort is ok for me.

Yup ... I've changed the rears to Monroe blue too - radial matic is the model. Have not driven it yet to work. So far ok.

I'm thinking, do the rear springs need changing too after a couple of years?

Radial matic 65 each. I bought it at one of the spare parts shop near Vistana Hotel. Tauke told me promotional price. Usually sold at 90 each. Tauke also wanted my to take the Monroes for the front absorbers too for RM250 a pair. But no moneylah to spend so much in one go

I don't think Radial matic is the same as sensatrac. Sensatrac I think is gas. Radial matic is oil. This radial matic range though not displayed in the SEA monroe website. Only info I can find on it is from Monroe Belgium.

Hi all.I don;t think radial matic is good coz mine only use for 1 year,i would say it's too soft.First few month i use is ok,after that u can feel that it'll eventually hit the base whenever i drive thru even a small bump.I also plan to change to a good one.Anyone got any good absorber to recommend for Kelisa? The original Kelisa 1 can last me for 2++ yrs,but monroe radial matic was disappoint me.... angry.gif
