    Default Civic Vti 01 (Brake Pads, Plugs & Shock Absorbers)

    Hello friends

    My Brother just bought brake pads for Honda Civic VTi 2001 for 3200 rupees for all four wheels (genuine)

    And 4 plugs Honda HKS FOR 450 RUPEES (Genuine)

    Is the price fair ????

    He also Requires shock absorbers and the asking price for that is 18000 rupees (Genuine) (Entire Set)

    Is the price fair ????

    And are there any alternatives for the shock absorbers i mean desi one or used ones

    Thanks in Advance
    HAPPY

    I got used shock absorbers for my civic from bilal gunj for 8k. (set of 4) but i think they r not worth it. After about 4 months i feel these r loosing the shock absorbing Capability.

    Buying used Shock Absorbers is not recommended nor is buying the No.2 ones. Buy Genuine ones but do tell him todo a good survey. If he cant buy in one go , he can buy a set of front or rear the ones which need quick replacement.
    But dont buy used ones or repair the ones you have already.
    Waiste of time and effort, i assure you that.
