Yellows are more expensive than the red & would cost you more than 30 K for the whole set.

The cars body roll has decreased considerably & feels very 'taut' . More confidence while accelerating & braking.

The pictures explains the proceedure enough for newbies like me. I would like to know if this available for Swift Petrol.

Do write about the difference you felt in the ride quality.

Currently the Damper setting is at the softest with Stock springs. The softest is slightly harder than stock dampers which is perfect for street driving.

Baleno stock struts are gas-charged ones - the test is to compress it (with the springs removed) & leave the rod; if the rod rises back to the original position, its gas-charged.

Chassis oscillations while going over a pot-hole or bump have greatly reduced but not to make the ride uncomfortable.

At low speeds (below 30 kmph) if there are wavery undulations in the road you can feel it because of the hardened damping. However as speeds increase it is minimal

The front damping adjustment can be done without removing the shocks, adjusted using a white knob. But the rear has to be removed for adjustment. Setting for the rear is done by compressing the damper rod & turning the top nut using an 'allen key'.

Clockwise to harden, anti-clockwise to soften.

You have to do a long term review man.

Default Baleno Suspension change or upgrade - Options?

HI All,

I own a 2007 Baleno VXI and the suspensions have become softer and weak. I am looking for suspension setup change overall, may be Koni's or Bilstein's or alike. A setup which improves the ride quality and handling.

1. Please suggest me whether Koni or Bilstein's are available ?
2. If not what other reliable brands can straight fit in Baleno ?
3. What costs?
4. If Koni's or Bilstein's (if anyone has stocked it) has to be procured from outside of Bangalore, which place or dealer ?
5. Apart from SGP which are quite expensive, What other options do I have ?
6. Any dealers in Bangalore who can help me in sourcing them?

Appreciate all the Bhpians in guiding me here.

Thanks
