    Dear only go for toyota starlet shocks these are very heavy shocks i hv also changed my 88 charade with starlet shocks from last 6 months. u can buy these only in 1700rs to 2200rs exchange with your shocks, from balal gang, most of the shopkeepers have done the very minor altertation just put shocks on bolt no hassel. u will realy enjoy.

    Ive got Charade 86 i also use to have probs of shocks than i put Shocks of Charade 88 (your car ones) they are much better and i never had shocks prob again.


    2 shocks front will cost you 2000 to 2500 Rs depending on the condition.


    Contact the 2 people below and buy ones in good condition from Sultan ka Kho.


    Akhtar (Akhtar Autos) 0300 - 5350240 (Tell him ur sent by the white 86 charade owner who bought shocks and power steering from u)


    Al Qaiser Autos 0333 5185434 they are kind of partners and shops bhi sath sath hai.


    Dun put starlet shocks they will make your ride rough.


    I have no Idea about the rear shocks but you can get them from Akhtar.


    If good quality original things are available qabli than dont go for alteration by putting some others cars parts thats my suggestion.

    Well a month ago i checked prices from shahid autos for front shock absorbers he told me only chinese comes and they are for 4500 Rs :p


    BTW some time they sell chinese things as korean so be careful the korean parts of charade are now hard to find mostly chinese.


    Chinese shocks might last one or two years but if u can get good qabli ones they will lost a lot more than this and cost half.
