Sir,

Wanted your opinion on the Monroe Gas Shock Absorbers. There are 2 types of Front Gas Shock Absorbers available from Monroe, one is with Spring & the other without it. I guess you have installed the one With Spring.

So far how is the performance of the Shock Absorbers, are they any good compared to normal shock absorbers ? Also how much is the corresponding increase in Ride Height when you install them.

Have you changed all 4 Shocks to Gas Socks or just the Front 2 to Gas & other 2 to OE Shocks ?

Thanks In Advance.

'Open Jeep Tours' an initiative of city-based entrepreneur and managing director of Safewheels, Prashanth BS, will begin soon.

These Gypsy's are to be used as an initiative to make travel easy and memorable, tourists will be offered rides in Maruti Gypsy's, all of which would be have an Onboard GPS. The GPS would is to act as a tourist guide. Complete information will be given when a jeep reaches a road or any heritage building located on that road. These cars will have a voice-enabled system that will act as an audio guide.

The open SUV tours will start twice a day and be of 2-hour duration. They are not exclusive for Dasara, but will run throughout the year. Evening tours will give visitors a chance to see the sunset, lights of the Mysore palace and other places.

Schedule tours can also be organised as per the group's requirement. The tours will take visitors through heritage, architectural and other significant destinations.

The circuit is as follows : Lalitha Mahal Palace, Administrative Training Institute (ATI), Chamundi Hill view point, Race Course, Government Guest House, Wellington House, Clock Tower, Free Masons Club, Town Hall, Gandhi Square, Devaraja Market, Guru Sweets, Dufferin Clock Tower, KR Circle, Lansdowne Building, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC).

Some more pictures of the Gypsy's

1) Stock leaf springs all around. Dampers are a combo of Innova rear dampers at the front and Xylo rear dampers on the rear. Provides a much comfortable ride.

2) -30 offset, tyre size being 235/75 R15.
Hi, Chakravarthy, Really a nice ride, the gypsy looks great in those shoes, hows the ride with these tyre size, do you have a power steering, is it manageable without the PS??

The ride's a bit on the harsh side, plus noisy.

I've never felt the need for a PS.

I must admit whoever performed the subtle mods on these gypsy's are really brilliant! They are a treat to your eyes when you see them in person. I got to see them upfront when I had been to Mysuru (hometown) during Dasara. I really liked the way these cars were modded for the tour. I hope to have one in my porch in few years down the line. Gypsy has always been my favorite and with fat tyres and rims, the look further enhances to a large extent

My experience of the car is that there is little that just shock absorbers can do to tame the terrible ride the OE leaf spring suspension delivers particularly at the rear, so any change of just these is a waste of money.

The ride will be eons better if the Leaf Springs, Shocks along with Steering damper are replaced.

The changed ride will make the money spent worth it.

Are you referring to the fibre leaf springs?
