What could be the culprit? Link Rod (or) Shocks?

Can someone help?
I also experienced similar Issue recently in my Ritz VDI. There was a rumbling sort of noise or a thud noise which going over Potholes or Speed Breakers.

Maruti inspected and stated that there is Play developed in the Front Suspension.
Both Link Rods, One Side Strut and Stabilizer Bar Bush was replaced which got rid of the noise.

Though replacing Shocks was suggested as last resort if the noise didn't go away.

i am also a proud owner of Ritz VDI. And over a period of 7 years the car has been driven for around 75000 kilometers. The running would have easily crossed 1 lakh mark had i not got a new honda diesel. But believe me that the ownership has been fantastic all these years. I try to sneak out with this rocket whenever possible. Initially, when the car was serviced at one of the dealer network, the service bills would run really high. Touching 10-12 thousand every-time. But then i switched over to one of the Maruti Authorized service stations near my home and then the bills dropped to less than half. The main reason i see here is that the advisers here do not scare you away by proposing useless value additions. Infact, i asked them if the brake shoe needs replacement to which they said that it would last another thirty thousand kilometers.

I also felt the rumbling sound at around Sixty thousand mark. Changed the shocker mounts, link rods and some rubber bush along the stabilizer bar. The total cost was around 2700.

Almost nearing 5 years of ownership with my Ritz VDI with 73000kms on Odo. 12 days back, the car stalled while running. The malfunction indicator light showed up. I had to call the emergency assistance and they cancelled the error codes and let go. Next day, again stalled while running that too inside the city traffic. The car's SVS light (check engine light) blinking and malfunction indicator also glowing. Few minutes later, both disappeared and I was able to reach home with the car. Maruti service took the car to the workshop (Popular, Muvattupuzha) and left the car for 2 days there. They claims that there is an earth wire connected to ECM which was disconnected internally and that was the reason car get stalled. Anyways, the service team took the car for a ride through the surrounding areas for 55kms or so and verified that the problem is resolved. I hope the Ritz VDI will run fine and be reliable. These are the error codes shown in Maruti's OBD scanner:

The first time when only malfunction indicator glowed and car stalled:
1. P0685 ECM Power Relay
2. P0090 Fuel Press Reg
3. P0657 Actuator Supply Volt A

The second time, when Check Engine Light (SVS) blinking and Malfunction indicator ON, following codes were shown:
1. P0657 Actuator Supply Volt A
2. P0685 ECM Power Relay

This car is completely stock, no electricals or anything touched, serviced at the dealer service only. However, 45 days back, battery was replaced due to acid leak under warranty (EXIDE). New battery is connected.

Now, the problem is resolved. But, wonder about the diagnostics of the Maruti ASC. Total bill came out around Rs6000, including a front suspension job (stabilizer bar bushes etc).

Overall, this was a nightmarish experience when you get stalled randomly especially in the night time and since the modern cars are all sensor controlled, not much can be done by the workshops opened during the night time.
