No suspension issues apart from regular wear & tear and few tyre issues, mainly limited to the GY & the last set of Michelin's.
Guess it was a stroke of bad luck after all. All this happened over a period of 18 months till I finally got sick of the whole thing and replaced the OHCs tyres with OEM sizes. Dad's still got his Palio but has now changed to stock tyres.
