    In Khi, go to Wasim Engineering infront of Cafe Piyala.


    If you are interested in used shocks, you can have mine. I'm looking to upgrade my 2004 Cultus's stock ones (unrepaired and in genuine condition)

    Well i bought KYB shocks from plaza 3 months back for Rs.5100, some people were asking Rs.5700. But very happy with the performance.

    Earlier had gabriels installed but ride was very still so replaced them.

    One more option is that you exchange your shocks with kabli ones which will cost you around 2000-2500. But that is risky, sometimes they last very long and sometimes not even 6 months.

    If you can afford it, buy KYB shocks and hopefully all your problems will end inshallah. I have a khyber too.

    Very nice, enjoy the ride now. Malaysia is just written on it, they are made in Pakistan but under license.

    Don't know about the rubber packing because i didn't need to raise the height, why did you need to raise it?

    @syncview yar i only placed rubber packing in the front shocks and 1 shock was repaired.2 springs for 1000rswere available.but its better to keep ur orignal shocks cause the shocks available in the market these dayz r of inferior quality!! if u want to renew ur suspension then add kyb shocks wid orignal springs.

    3 months ago I inquired the price of front two shock absorbers for Khyber from Kiyani Autos Gawalmandi Rawalpindi. He told me 5500 Rs and the company was KYB. He said that they are made in Japan. However I bought only the rear ones for Rs 2500. Same KYB company.
    I have also placed rubbers in my car's front shock absorbers to raise its height but a mechanic was telling me that this is not a good idea, the shock absorbers become stiff. The good way to raise height is to place aluminum spacers above the shocks.
    Don't know what is correct.
