Offcourse we have a choice, Eibachs are great and a trite cheaper... then there is KW and bilstein.

Konis have entered the market sooner, and are therefore demanding a premium.

My best advice to get any one of these is to go to their websites and find out the wholesaler.. Talk to them source it through them.. It will be cheaper by atleast 15% then buying it from the local shop..

Here are the main dealers for some of the brands that I know:

Eibach & Koni:
30/1, Rear block
7th Cross, Lavelle Road
Bangalore - 560001
Karnataka, India
Phone: 91-80-22217879,
91-80-22273939
Website: Corporate: Methods Car Parts and Car Accessories Online Shop and Distributors in Bangalore India, K&N Performance Filters, Sparco Motorsport Accessories
Website: Retai: Car power grid

Note: Though not mentioned on their site, they also carry Eibachs.. Call them ask to speek with Mr. Ramesh Kumar.

KW Coilovers and Springs:
No.2/197, MUTTUKADU (ECR)
CHENNAI, TAMIL NADU, INDIA.
PIN CODE - 603 112
PH: 91 - 44 - 27472894
Mobile: 91 - 9884121584
Website: PJ SPEED SHOP

Note: They also sell BBS Alloys and other accessories.

I will post the official retailers for Bilstein etc once I find it.

Hi RJstyle,

Have you completed the mod on your suspension ? if yes, then what exactly did you do and how has that helped? Can you also provide information on the total cost involved for stiffening the suspension.

Since you know the distributors of the Eibachs, KW and Bilstein, please give us the part numbers for the front and rear dampers. Cars are Baleno and esteem.

J Anand is available for Balenos as well. I have heard quotes anywhere from 70K to 1L.
