But question is why ? If it aint broke dont try to fix it that's the best policy to maintain anything.

Guys, chassis height checking & adjustment (if necessary) is part of the regular service schedule. I'm not familiar with the 2.2 service schedule but its there in the 3.0 liter schedule under the section on suspension checks, alignment & balancing.

Its just that the TASS prefer to skip this bit because (I was told) its a tedious & cumbersome process. If you see some of the older Safaris, the rear rides lower than the front - those are sure-shot candidates for the chassis height raising treatment.

Thanks Dadu,
You have been a life saver as usual. Please let me know whether u drilled holes in the fender, how many and was it easy. Also is there any way to do it without drilling holes in the body. And did you do it at Toyota or elsewhere.

Oh! no, its not in my Safari, its a 3.0ltr I had seen earlier in the parking lot. My assumption is that it will not work without drilling holes as you need to fit it snugly.

My suggestion is to buy it and fix the position by asking someone to hold it in place as you sit on the drivers seat. Ask him to outline the clamp on the bodu using a soft marker. Then mark the holes too before start drilling. Use a nail to create the centre in the hole marked for the drill bit to direct while drilling, otherwise the drill will jump.

The Labour charges are included for all the job done including suspension and tie rod work.

The Servicing was done at Concorde Motors, Mysore Road and well taken care by Mr.Reddy who is proactive in sorting out the issues.

@gowda: Shoudn't labor be free for the 5th Free service? I thought you only pay for parts/consumables and not the labor for Free service.

IMO the recommended grade is 20w50 and not xw40? Please clear the doubt!

What is the price of Front Brake Pads for 2.2? I removed them yesterday to check the status of the pads and it doesn't look like it will last for another 500KM. I noticed the pads on the inner side of the discs are the ones which are worn out much more than the outer ones. Is this normal?

And is it okay if I change them myself. It looks like a pretty straight forward job, Pulling out the old pads and putting in the new ones.
