Strut braces are used to reduce body flex and make the unibody more stiffness. Strut braces help when you auto cross the car.
Psycho should definitely be able to help you in that. I know he has a soft corner for any esteem.

Damn right!
The esteem is like a boat. Its got all the power,FE,etc....and its weakest link is the boat like suspension.

The best solution for U is the following combo:
Pedders Heavy duty Coil Springs + Comfort Gas shocks.
Here's the linky of Pedders stuff for various cars. U'll find what u need: Electra Performane -Products

PS: Electra was having a challenge with a shipment which got delayed for long.So, check availability with them.

Sorry for not updating this thread sooner with the progress. I met Psycho regarding suspension last month in his workshop and after inspection he was of the view that "con+tie rod" was in bad shape and replaced it.

I am still having the same issue(bodyroll) even after replacing "con+tie rod". He then told me that customised suspension work needs to be done which will be about 10-12k. I am still confused whether to do this or not in an old car and whether it will fix issues? What do u guys think?

Check with Arush (autopsyche). He is based in Delhi IIRC. Have him take a look at the car. He should be able to help.

Default Body roll leads to dizziness?

Will this above said body roll (boat like movement, waddling) makes people sitting in the backseat vomiting, fall sick or feel dizziness?

Please advice

Heard that if some adjustments are done in the anti roll bar, this body roll will disappear? What adjustments need to be done on the anti roll bar to make the vehicle comfortable (not just while taking corners, but also while moving on good roads with low degree curves).
