    Default Khyber ROAD CLEARANCE problem....????????

    Hello Folks,

    I bought a khyber-93, but as it has a generic characteristic that it has less road clearance. Specially on RWP's streets adn roads its very difficult to keep its bottom clean. Car touches almost every speed breaker
    if having 4-5 pessengers. Is there any way out through which it can be uplifted ???? I already tried steel packing both with front and rear shocks but it lessen the road grip. What should i do?

    Are you using low profile tyres such 12/R65/165 etc. Use a tyre which has a greater number with R in size such as R75. You can also try 13inch rims and high profile tyres. Just a few suggestions, may be they work or not.

    4-5 people in the car and I assume u also have CNG. If so then even a Corolla will touch a speed breaker. If u still think that ur car is unecessarily low then have ur shock absorbers checked. A simple test ican be done in the following way:
    1)Stand at any corner of the car and press sharply down on it using both hands.
    2)The car should go down and come up. That means it should give only 1 bounce. If so then ur shocks r ok.
    3)If the car keeps bouncing then ur shocks need to be changed.
    By installing bigger rims u will lower the clearance between the tyres and the mudguards. So if there is load in the car the tyres might touch the body. Be a bit careful in this regard. Hope ur problem goes away.
