nice upgrades Amey

those grooves on the rotors look like they are just waiting to shred the pads to pieces in no time !

do tell us how long ur pads last with these rotors vs the standard rotor-pad combo ( i presume u would run stock pads on those upgraded rotors ? )

oh yes - it would be those 2-3 passengers who would complain about the ride going bad

Good One frank.

The Car looking great Amey, How many inches Drop in height?? Instead of projectors I would suggest bigger rims, may be 16". My Two Cents opinion.

I think shocks might prove better instead of the springs as stiffened springs will make the ride a lot bouncy. I personally was dissatisfied with H&R Springs tested on my Verna and am in constant lookout for after market shocks . Well Koni seems to have released shocks for Swift this month, so swift guys are lucky- checkout the link.Koni: New Product Info - Suzuki Swift

The konis came out last month. Bilsteins will be launched sometime this year. I'm waiting for that.

The rotors are surely OE size, upsizing them (if at all possible) would entail a lot of work & is quite pointless IMHO

Hi,

Not 100% sure but they look larger. Guess only Amey can clarify.

Viper

If the rotors are larger, the first thing he would have to change would be the alloys, right ?

Anyway, let Amey clarify
