Also, I can call him and let him know that you will come for servicing. So let me know when you decide to visit him.

Another place I highly recommend is the Bosch Car Care Centre located near Atul Kataria Chowk, on Sheetla Mata Mandir Road, Gurgaon. It is owned by a trusted friend, Devender and has a reputation for VFM, reliable and quick service of the Pajero/Pajero Sport. You can pay them a visit if you fee like.

An update after a very long time. I was out of country and the Dark Horse was parked securely all this while. I recently moved to Bangalore and was on a lookout for a good garage.

Finally I found Milestone Garage from http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/bangal...bangalore.html and visited them yesterday. My experience was out of the world and I am happy to have found a solid, reliable, knowledgeable, sincere and a great guy. You can read about my visit on the above link.

So the update is that at 92K my rear trailing arms bushes finally breathed their last. Sunil at Milestone garage did a fantastic job and replaced the bushes today. With this I also got the rear stabilizer rod bushes changed as well as the front stabilizer rod bushes changed as well. Shockers are still good and so is everything else.

I also got the fan belts (All three) replaced and did the customary Drive shaft greasing along with the front upper ball joint greasing.

Finished with a full wash and the Pajero is brand new again

Total Damage was 11990/- that included both spares and labour charges. The expense was roughly split evenly between the parts and labour.

Great experience so far with the Mighty Pajero. It still runs true and strong and I hope to do many more Klicks with it.

Apologize for replying so late. Perhaps this may still help. Here is an image from the workshop manual that I have. This shows all the points for greasing.

Hi Traveler,

The front shocks of my pajero seems to have been wornout. Should i go for an original one which is priced at Rs. 9,500/- each. or for an aftermarket one?

Can u please suggest me a good after market shock for the truck.

And where can i get the workshop manual in pdf format for pajero sfx.

Iron Man or Bilstein shocks are both considered good. I have no idea where you will get them though. I guess Iron Man is available in India officially and you may want to Google for their distributor in India

The original shock absorbers are definitely not bad but Ironmans' too are good. Of course, the dealer prices are expensive. It is possible to get them for a significantly lower price.

I have a used pajero. It has done 65000. The vehicle bumps too much and does not settles easily. So I guess the shocks must have been out.

They have a factory in Sonipat. Perhaps you could call then and find out who stocks their pads in Delhi. Look up their website here http://roulunds-braking.eu/group-companies/ and call them.

I can give you the Chandigarh dealers contact if you want to buy from him. Let me know if you want his details and I will send you a PM.

I tried calling the roulund office at sonepat a lot no. Of times in the past but nobody picks up the phone over there.

Anyways if u have the chandigarh dealers no. please forward me the same. May be he would know some dealer at delhi.

One more thing dost, do u always go for the OEM or an after market one also does the work for u.Like the bushes u mentioned. Did u got them original or an after market one.

Also the bushes for pajero come as a full kit,right? One full kit for the front and one for rear.

Hi Traveler,

Got my hands on Roulunds today. But by then i already had purchased the pads. So no need for the chandigarh dealer number. Anyways thanks, will revert if needed some help regarding the vehicle in future.

But please let me know about the bushes. Can i also get them individually? as my research till now have proved otherwise i.e. the bushes are available only as full kits. one full kit for front and one for rear.

You can get the bushes individually also. I got the front stabilizer and rear stabilizer bushes individually. I also got the rear drop link bushes separately. The full kit is rarely needed and has bushes for front arms and rear shockers top side bushes. Other bushes that you can get are the rear trailing arm bushes that I recently replaced.

I got my bushes from milneroffroad.com. They have polyurethane bushes that are much better. Here in India try to get bushes of some good company like
RBI which is Rubber Intertrade Company http://www.rbi.co.th/ or try to get Malaysian bushes. Don't buy Chinese bushes.

For fuel and oil filter you can try Sakura or Mann filters, both are OEM suppliers.
