    Exclamation Chevrolet joy shocks and springs

    I have a 2008 model chevrolet joy. The front shocks were replaced 2 years back with kabli ones. But never got the required performance.
    Can some one guide me the best suspension work person in Rwp/ Isb. I need to get my Car front shocks changed.

    I used spacer of 1 inch at my car as in high speeds and full load and bumps on road made the car tyre touch the mud guard. But spacer have made the rear shocks very hard and car just jumps up and down every time i pass a speed breaker.

    The car actual tyre size is 155/70/R13 and I am using dunlop digi eco 165/65/R13 is this affecting the back shocks along with spacer too >????

    Guide me where to get the car checked and get suspension work done in which car is comfy and can bear 5 ppl load in a smooth way.

    Contact Yasir at 0333 5474325. He's a Chevy trained mechanic.

    Contact Shehzad at (051) 5568254 for Chevy parts.
    Some parts of chevy joy can be replaced with cherry qq. Thus bringing down the price of replacement considerably. Good luck.
    Difficult I can do today, impossible will take a little longer.

    Yasir does all of the mechanical work.

    Shocks are not repaired, they are replaced.

    Check with Shehzad autos for a complete list of Cherry QQ items that can be used in Chevy Joy.

    Then i went to Khan Engineering near mareed hassan chowk through gawal mandi left side.........that guy shahid ........said kay hissay ka kaam hai ........4-5,000 lagayain *** .aglay hissay ko set kernay main .......bush rubber wagira Rs 1,000 kay ain *** almost..........shocks theek hain ........ziyada main masla play hai hissay main ........joy kay shocks .......gass walay hotay hain .......tou ap new dalain ya phir kableee ...jo mithoo khaan kay ahaatay main milain *** saddar say ........

    Though Yasir is good mechanic but if you really intend to get the shocks changed or repaired then i would suggest you better talk to Agha sb Manager Chevrolet motors I-9, islamabad.
    In chah sultan there are 2 x dealers who deals with the chevy kabuli parts, one sits on the main double road where the mosque lies, 2nd shop in the small gali that leads to the mosque. the other sits, once you Cross the second chowk(turning) and turns right while your back is facing margallah mountains. i dont have the location since some one told me about him a long time ago.

    yasir told me original GM shocks cost about 11k which is quite expensive, Aziz auto is giving it for Rs 6.5K (both front Shocks) and repair is easily done from 2k to 2.5k. I am confused as I want a middle range so the labour , front hissaa and change of shocks cost me not more than 6-7k. Thus I seek good place for kabli shocks, If the kabli shocks cost me 4k even I can get all work done Insha Allah in my range.

    As per my experience whatever you do with the shocks, install originals, you can get it from saddar goal market infront of tyre market ( i believe aziz autos) u have mentioned khan workshop, is it the same near mareer chowd ? last shop on your right side ? he knows his work...wont recommend chevy dealers by any means (all big butchers) (they should be the laaaaaast resort).
    For spares even you can install khyber and cultus accessories in chevy like brake and clutch wires, oil filters etc or can use guard accessories.
    Need to treat chevy like a baby, it needs special attention all the time.
    Make no mistake between my personality & my attitude...My personality is who I'm, my attitude depends on who u r.

    Thanx silent killer, Yep khan engineering works, near mareed chowk on right. Khan was saying not much problem with shocks .....but front hissa has a lot of play.......if front hissa is ok .....then only shocks can work properly.........mmmm ........further Dora Shock repair specialist said my Shocks could be repaired..and warranty would be 6 Months.......but I was thinking if I can get hands on Kabli ones..........they can work well too........new +all the labour is costing me about 11k where as I dont want to spend over 7k.

    I checked from a guy near glass factory chowk today ........in Chah Sultan .........he said he has kabli shocks for Rs 2.2k and coil of back would be replaced by GLI springs for 1.5k .......he would take my items .......labour included in all this price............and was giving warranty of all items for 6 months........and for rest of hissa a mechanic would do all the stuff........mmmmmmm well...........i think Rs 2.2k means these are repaired........as kabli ones cannt be that cheap.........i checked the shocks.......i couldnt hear any oil inside it........chevy joy has gas filled shocks.......

    my car mechanically is in outclass condition.............i want its body to be perfect tooo......

    Friends, need help. I have a JOY, somebody told me that we can replace suspension (chimta, ball joints, end tie rods Etc) with mehran as the these things are similar and can adjust without any problems in JOY, is it true?

    @bottlechain, although I'm three years late but i think your experience would be quite worthy & helpful for new chevy users. Can you share your experience i.e. from where did you get your chevy shocks reparied/replaced?
    @auto799: your response above is quite helpful but it would be more helpful if you can specify the address more closely of those shops you talked about at chah sultan. Regarding Chevrolet Islamabad Motors I9, there's only one man worth visiting them i.e. Altaf mechanic who is quite experienced and working there since past 14-16 years i think. Rest of everyone are just ruining chevy's riding/mechanical experience and chevy's future in Pakistan. People love that brand a lot but just because of these selfish dealers we can't get reasonable maintenance of cars easily.
