Default Suggestion required on new suspension

Dear all .,

Finally time has come to change my esteems suspension and i need the advice in this regards

When i checked in local market for struts the two options has come out
[*]Gabriel Hydraulic[*]KYB Gas filled Dampers

Now Please tell me with which one should i go . KYB gas filled doesn't come with Springs and gabril has option of both with and with out springs .

And my mechanic says no one replaceses springs in car and its only the dampers along with the other components are need to be changed.

The cost of Gabril with spring is 2430/- for front strut and that of KYB gas filled ( without spring ) is 1680/- .

For rear i haven't came across any gas filled dampers .

Is it advisable to go for front gas filled and rear hydraulic suspension ?

Please help me


Regards
Prashanth

Not a problem !

I would recommend KYB Gas filled Dampers although Gabriel is not so bad !

yes your meahanic is correct 99.99% during the suspension work its just the shockers and dampers are change not the springs.
