    well its been 6 years (2008-2014) the car is with me till this day and the first two years (2006-2008) with the previous owner.
    the thing is that after driving for 8 years on the evil and bad patches of roads time to get 2006 civic aka Reborn suspension fix after 8 Years Help needed -1404734time to get 2006 civic aka Reborn suspension fix after 8 Years Help needed -1404735 the front suspension is making a hard "dhaak" sound like the on hitting these type of roads . specially the sound is more worse when i go through the underpass on the canal road when it hits both of the bumps on high speeds. the rear shocks seems to be ok as the mechanic too a test drive and said the front shocks are finished.
    its been about 4-5 months i am driving like this now i cant take the bumps any more what should i do.
    should i...
    i) swap both front shock absorbers with spring and mountings from bilal gunj
    ii swap the shocks and keep the old genuine springs and mountings (if ok)of mine. from the kharadia
    iii) your suggestions will be highly appreciated.
    what do you guys suggest and do quote the estimated cost . also guide me about good workshops in lahore as i am unable to find any good one till now.

    why not u sell ur car and buy another as its not may be only ur car's shocks fault,many other suspension parts may be also included because driving on bumpy roads is not good for suspension of a car abd ur car is 8 years old so many things may be need to replaced.

    its better to get the suspension fine but selling the car is not an option. just for a work of few thousand rupees, why change the car and pay a huge difference of amount
    people need to grow up sometimes and act MATURE !

    First open up the front suspension and check what parts are faulty. Then replace or repair all the parts which are faulty. Simple.
    None of the brave deserve fair....

    Do check your car's 'chimtay' as well. They also produce weird sound of metal touching another metal on bumpy roads.

    I suggest you to change the front shocks with refurbished ones from Bilal Gunj. There is no need to change the springs. I purchased new shock mountings and shock rubber covers from Montgomery road. The shocks from Bilal Gunj costed me only Rs 5000 and Rs 500 labor cost with one week guarantee. Mine are doing very well for the last two years. Don't waste money on brand new shocks as KYB shocks are for Rs 18000 and genuine shocks of Showa brand are for Rs 27000. I am giving you the number of few very good dealers in Bilal Gunj for your help. Romail Butt 03224617296, Sohaib Butt 03224849642, Nadeem 03004298985. I got my deal done with Romail butt. Get price from all three dealers and then choose the one with the lowest bid. Shock rubber covers are for Rs 1100 and mountings for Rs 2200. Total estimated cost is Rs 10000 approximately.
