Default Re: Figo Suspension - to mod or not to mod

Basically answer the following questions and the decision whether you need new shocks or OEM shocks will be clear.

Do you intend to keep the vehicle the same height or is it going to change (higher or lower)
Are you putting in a beefed up suspension to better handle the road conditions
Do you want better highway handling (lowered suspension for better cornering)

As you can see the above questions are aimed at seeing if changing to after market or OEM is fine

I am surprised that a Figo's Suspension broke down this early. I really like the suspension setup. I would do anything to keep the Figo's suspension stock as possible.

Leave the performance dampers for owners of the i20, Micra et al
Absolutely SPOT on !

I have a sharp handling Getz with monroe suspension and a stock Figo.

Figo's setup is way better than the Getz. Feels so relaxed even while cornering at triple digit speeds.

Figo has one of the best stock suspension setup, upgrading is not advisable.

Why do you advise against it so strongly?
Agreed the stock dampers will wear out faster but replacing a stock damper is way cheaper than buying sport dampers.
