No, the breakup was not provided to me because he was not certain as to what parts needed to be changed. He said that he would need to take apart the entire assembly to find the cause of that noise, then according to that, the price would depend. I forgot to mention that he even suspected the steering-rack making the noise as he felt the noise was more from the front-right side.

This is when I was given the rough estimate of 30000 rupees excluding the steering-rack work if any. I am still studying, so was not very comfortable spending so much in one shot.

Can you please tell me in detail how your problem was rectified, 150 rupees per bushing seems good if the problem gets solved.

I too do not have a great idea on this, and like you, still researching.

Regarding the bush:-

When I had this problem (a thud sound when falling into potholes), I first went to MASS, where they said that the lower arm has to be replaced, which was costing 4K per side (Will need to replace both sides). And then I took the car to a local mechanic back in native who said that the entire lower arm need not be replaced, but just replacing the bush in it should be good enough; This is that rubber bush inside the lower arm. It was pretty cheap, like I said earlier, 150/-

And replacing that had indeed fixed the problem.

Now after 3 years, I have the similar problem and the same mechanic says it is the shock absorber that is weak now, and no other way than to replace it; either with a SGP or a local one.

Even I did a lot of searching on the net to ascertain the solution to this problem, but have not been able to find anything worth trying.

I will try getting these bushings changed as soon as I get some time to spare, for 600 bucks it is worth trying out. Will update the thread with the results.

To all the Mumbai TeamBHPians can you please let me know of some reliable place to get this job done, Sunil Uncle(Select Auto) will not have time for such minor stuff.
