Default Re: 1st Gen Honda City Owners - Problems Areas, Fuel Efficiency and more

OHC lovers,

I have a 02 model 1.5 OHC clocked 110k km on the odo. FC is done till 2022 and it's close to my heart - This OHC. It's been a year with me and have ran 7k km once I purchased last year. Did a recent service at Honda and here are the recommended areas of service :

1. FR RH & RR RH wheel bearings need to be replaced
2. FR LH Shock absorbers need to be replaced
3. FR both stabilizer bar link need to be replaced
4. RR LH stabilizer bar link to be replaced

I would like to know what is the best procedure to get this done from the following below. Or more better ideas are most welcome. I would be using the car for another 2 years minimum but always particular about running the car in pristine condition. I occasionally do highways once in 2 months sure and else mostly city ride. It has 15 inch Yokohoma tyres with GRT alloys in it, rest all is stock.

a. Authorized Honda service. I have asked for the quote will share once I regain my senses after looking the figures.
b. Source the OEM parts and get it done by reliable mechanic
c. Source the spare parts [Non OEM tend to be as good as OEM or superior some times works better than OEM] and get it repaired from reliable mechanic

Please share the online links or offline ways to get the spare parts sourced. I want it to be done in an economical way but wants the car to be in perfect condition.

Regards

I recommend option C - source any spares which are of good quality (like you rightly said, can be better than OEM. Even OEM works!).

You are not in my city so I can't recommend you the ways to get the spares. Local boys should be here soon to guide you!

Thanks for the suggestions. Is it possible to get a quote - with part number, price and the brand from your sources. Or can I reach them out via - Mail/IM/Phone or any other means.

I can try arrange my friends in case co-located there. Meanwhile let me wait for Bnglr folks reply.

FR LH SHOCK ABSORBERS NEED TO BE REPLACED. 9000
FR BOTH STABILISER BAR LINK NEED TO BE REPLACED. 5000
RR LH STABILISER BAR LINK NEED TO BE REPLACED - 3000

After Market Price

FR RH & RR RH WHEEL BEARINGS NEED TO BE REPLACED - 2000 [NSG or some brand]
FR LH SHOCK ABSORBERS NEED TO BE REPLACED. 2300 [Gabriel]
FR BOTH STABILISER BAR LINK NEED TO BE REPLACED. Not Available
