Direct fit. No cutting/pasting anything. Cost is mentioned in the link. Please add 50% for shipping and duties.

Default Koni Part number

Eapen, whats the update on this man? How can you sit on Konis and not fit it?

Whats the part number for these struts? Can we order it directly from Koni?

They are available in bangalore for 34k from methods just inserts.

Directly from Koni will be a parallel import since they have representatives in India

I am thinking that it will be much cheaper if we buy it in US and someone gets it along.

Did you get it from Leela?

I think Eapen is now onto a diesel of sorts.

No Deep, I didn't buy them new. They were off an unused rally car, but I guess Leela initially imported them. He is the DMS India distributor, AFAIK.

I have seen the DMS setup in the Esteem - costs more than 1.5 lakhs. Good for Rallys but too stiff for street.

No I am not into diesels - but very tempted after driving a Swift Turbo Diesel !

My install is on the hold now because I do not want to cut my stock shock ( I got a free replacement for the right under warranty because it was making noises). I have paid a scrap guy to get me used Baloeno shocks. Its been a month & I am still waiting !

Well ice - lucky you. I inquired in Shivajinagar 2 months back & couldn't get it. I have given Rs: 3000 to the guy & he says he'll give it to me by next week.

Hey eapen, I have to say this is a very informative thread. I also have a 2006 Baleno Vxi and I really want to work on this car. Could you tell me how much it worked out for you for the Koni Yellows with the installation please?

Finally had it fixed yesterday at RAC, Koramangala

1. Hold the strut on the wrench, cut & remove the internal damper.






2. Drill a hole in the bottom & fix the Koni's inside by hammering the top body - ring part.
