    Palio MJD Suspension issues

    Hi

    I am using a Palio MJD and as per Aadya and Vecto motors the issue is with suspension as such I Am hearing occasional noise from the front ...

    1) There is no dragging to right or left side
    2) I dont feel hard to handle steering
    3) Even if I leave steering, car wont drag to any side
    4) FASS says lower arm, struts, bush need replacement and they will come to know about the springs and etc only after opening it
    5) the estimate they have given is exorbitantly high 30K INR,

    No one has any stocks of parts and not sure which parts needs replacement, they might need to order and can take their own sweet time to get them and replace it ... offline mechanics advised me to get it repaired outside and they did not recommend any mechanic / garage even on insisting / stressing them

    I am looking for alternate options like repairing lower arm / suspension instead of replacing it, can you suggest any good indipendant Garage / mechanic either in hyderabad or in bangalore who can do some good work

    Also wanted to know can i go on longdrives on highways at high speed (100 -120 kmph max) with this faulty suspension or any drivinng precautions till i replace this one with a new one which probably should happen this year ...

    Request the experts in this forum to suggest / recommend me good options ...

    Ravi

    Just an occasional noise? What sort of noise is that?

    How much has your car clocked so far? Would suggest you get it checked with someother reliable worksahop also and then take a call.

    Ideally the oem struts costs close to 10k each, so fass would have estimated accordingly.

    Alternatively you can consider non oem parts if getting done from private workshop.

    I guess FASS given the recommendation based on Age of the car but if you dont feel any difference in ride quality get it checked with some reliable workshop.

    I am not sure why Lower arm needs a replacement unless the bushes worn completely..

    Re: Palio MJD Suspension issues

    @cvanandh : I have completed around 80K, not sure about non OEM parts for Palio, Any suggestions and guidance from where I can procure it ....
    @dhans4all: yeah per FASS both Sturts and Bush needs a replacement along with Lowerarm .... but the service engineers there suggested me to get it repaired outside instead of spending huge amount ... i am not sure of any indipendant mechanics who can work on palio suspensions ...

    I guess you can check your suspensions with some reliable workshop. I feel you can continue driving till you feel comfort level is not up to the mark or suspension noise is a disturbance.

    you can go for Excel power suspension (aftermarket for Palio) as its cost effective solution.

    check the below thread where syed has recommended some mechanic in Bangalore.
