Thats 5.7K for each damper. Works out 23K approx for the four dampers for the car. Thats round about the fig.

This is just the damper you are buying and should be a fit the car if its the exact model suiting your car.

I did not want to open another thread for my questions..
1) Have any one tried Konis on ikons? (Red or yellow)
2)what model number? any modifications required for the mounts?
3)what is the cost involved?

just got a quote from emperor in kochin for the red ones.
They ask 25 for the set. 10k advance and time required to source 6 days and balance at that point.
Do you think he is asking right or is there another store for the same?

i have a pair of KONI yellows. theres a slight problem with the fitting of the set i have. the hole spacing on the knuckle is greater than that on the KONI struts. I sourced this pair from Coimbatore through a contact of mine and it was being used on a Zen earlier. but one needs to alter the knuckle or some other alterations need to be made. I am trying to get this done. will let you know how it goes. KONI's dont have one that would suit the Zen directly.

I am getting this done at trichur. I should be getting the car tomorow just because of the alteration required on the mount I guess. Dont know exactly what, but seem to be what you mention.
