Default Suspension options for the Palio

I own a Fiat Palio 1.6 2008 model. Even when new, I found there is a good amount of body roll. As well the car's ride height is higher compared to the older retro 1.6 model (completely unloaded). Overall, the newer Palios seem to have a softer suspension compared to the earlier ones.

I was looking for swapping the suspension with an aftermarket one - something that offers better handling. Tried approaching Koni distributor, they don't make anything for the Palio. Tried googling, found nothing for this car.

Anybody here have experience with this car's suspension?

Thanks,
Vignesh.

Did some searching/googling. The only options I could find are H&R springs from Europe. They only make springs though, haven't yet found somebody who offers a complete kit.

Guess this is not a mod friendly car after all.

Worst case, I'll have to take out the front suspension, take some pictures and some measurements and see which other car from the Fiat family shares a similar design. And hope Koni or the likes have something to offer for that model. Sigh.

Folks,

Did you have any luck on the suspension. I am also getting ready in a few days to do up my Palio S10's suspension and am looking at all alternatives possible.

Cheers
