Default Need a decent suspension guy in/near NOIDA

My indica's suspension is aging, and replacement of both front springs+dampers is needed. Maybe even new struts. Apart from that the tie rods also appear to be gone.
I need some good workshop who can check the suspension and replace whats necessary. No TASS please, only independent workshop. TASS guys don't allow you near the vehicle, I guess the reason is that they don't want you to catch them overcharging etc.,
It need not be a very good workshop, I am not going for race spec suspension tuning, just simple damper/spring replacement, so any average guy is fine. All I want is that dude must know what he's doing and what all needs replacement.
Right now I have shortlisted a small workshop in sector 16 which on last instance of my passing by had 2 Sumo's and 3 indica's and a gypsy jacked up. This is a suspension only workshop, and I guess will be okay.
If any of you are aware of anybody better, it will be great.
The farthest I am willing to go is till khan market, but ideally would prefer somebody in Noida/South Delhi.

If you want you could go to the same guy my car goes to: Pandit & Co. located at 53, Okhla PhIII (Modi Flour Mill) but not sure whether he'll be cost-efficient for an Indica.

Why don't you meet him once, let him TD the car & give you an estimate?

What are the labour charges he charged for your suspension work. As for shocks and stuff, I guess it will be marked price, the killer is the labour.
since its not a TASS, they wont charge more than market price for parts(I hope)

Spares for Honda (genuine) are usually priced at around 30-40% cheaper than Honda service centres so he will be cheaper certainly. About the Labour I'll dig up my bill & tell you since I gotta update my thread too.

Best would be to ask him directly what Labour he'll charge, he'll able to give you a correct estimate depending on the work required.

Thanks Spark, can you list the details on how do I find him. Do not want to go to the big guys yet, a seasoned expert will be good.

@TSk1979 I had tried AutoEngineers for Suspension work on my old Zen (now sold), they did a decent job ... bill came to around Rs 3K including parts and labour ... but this was sometime back (around 2 yrs), all parts sourced from Vipul Motors to ensure that they were MGP ...

dj, now you have my attention, any directions please, are they a big workshop. I am scared of the big setups there, they try to make a lot of money.
As far as my suspension setup is concerned, you can make a lot of money if you want. Thats why I want to go to a honest fellow.
