    This honda should have a wishbone suspension setup unlike some other cars which have a simple strut design.

    Just make sure you get more than one opinion from different mechanics so that you don't get ripped off!

    Cheers.

    Repairing the shocks is not recommended, they won't last long.

    You can get a used pair from Bilal Gunj that might cost you a little less than 5000. But a new pair will cost you anything between 8000-12000, depending on the make. Last time I checked, a genuine set of 4 from Honda Fort was selling for about 24000.

    If the shocks are bad, then most probably several suspension bushings will also need to be replaced. So keep that in mind too.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    hello!
    Don't ask Honda 3S or they will Cut your Flesh from your Body.............try some good shops and check rates....also check old spares market...and look for some good Kabli ones....best option...but make sure of Gurantee and get them checked from suspension expert.. or you end up buying weak or leaked ones.......
    b/w....Honda Suspensions won't last longer..........it gave up earlier than anything.....
    Thanxxx
