    Default New Shocks for Mehran

    Mehran's left shock is becoming hard over and over again, replaced four sets of kablis in four months (only shocks) and after few days left shock hardens. Any idea?


    I am looking for some genuine new front shocks along with Strut Mounts. Can I get them? From where? What brand and part number is it? KYB or Gabriel? Appreciate your help. Waseem/Kiani have KYB as originals for some 5,000<cite></cite>

    then get full overhaul of suspension. which means. change shocks (new), wishbones(chimtay) new chinese ones (work good) or kabli in excellent condition otherwise not. new bushes and full checkup of godday too. a big kharcha but you will have complete peace of mind for atleast five years if you drive carefully from now on. and what is your tire and rim size?

    Default Thanks

    Tires Dunlop Digi Eco 155/70R12 installed a year back with alloy rims.

    Yes I am up for new shocks (KYB Rs. 5,500), springs (1,500) and mounts + all bushes. Will then see if need chimtas, new (Rs 3,000). Just worried will the original b real originals? Prices quoted by waseem autos for original parts.

    The current kabuli chimta i got two months back in very good condition. Not worried about kharcha, want the car fit. Already wasted around 20k on kabuli shocks and steering on recommendation of ***** mechanics. Better search yourself and install new parts.

    Thumbs up Treatment Done, Problem Solved

    Treatment done Here is the feedback.

    Lesson 1: Mehnga roy ik bar, sasta rota he rahy
    Lesson 2: Please forget kabuli parts, go for the orignals

    Just came back after driving the car twice on the same roads where I experienced all the above problems. I felt I have been driving the car without suspension before. My car is perfectly settled down, no movements, no bounces, no shaking, good braking, great feelings and handling. I'm loving it.

    Installed KYB shocks (632050/632051) + genuine mounts + genuine helper rod bushes, Rs. 6,500. Springs were checked (though purchased a new set by some SECO company, don't think it the genuine one), wishbone checked, both in good shape.

    HELL of difference.

    can they be refilled ? if yes then go for it plus i have seen why new shocks folks prefer gabrial over kyb
    structs etc u will find with kabuli ones and i chekced rates few days back
    its kabuli complete shocks
    1) 1500 for single side
    2) 2000 for steering assembly
    3) wishbones aka chimtay 1200 for both sides
    4) rear shocks 800 kabuli

    I replaced the shocks the of my mehran 1 month ago. do not remember the brand name. but I got the pair of shocks in 4800 Rs. new one.

    Mechanics suggested me to purchase pair of new shocks instead of getting Kabli one.. and shocks are perfect. car is very smooth now.
