    Default Suzuki Swift 2010 - Suspension issue!

    I need guidance on the subject as my swift has gone through the company & some local Mac but the drive has gone bad to worse! the ride is bouncy & the control has "play" in it. I can feel every bump & every stone on the road. The car jolts when i shift gear & the stability of the vehicle on the road is next to none! I'm worried & have taken a lot of opinions but have not come to a conclusion. Need help Plz.

    That's too disappointing that a 2010 model swifts suspension is gone... I would suggest you to try simple wheel alignment & camber adjustment + general tightening of suspension before going for a complete over-haul... May be this could resolve the issues. This happened with me too & general tightening of suspension along with wheel alignment made the drive perfect

    Else the problem would be with Axles & steering ends

    my swift which has done only 6000km also gives a small noise while changing gears. the noise is like a small deep sounding thud coming from wheels. Like as if something is wrong with the GODDAs (read in urdu) its like a GRUUP GRUUP sound. otherwise ride is fine and no other complaints.

    Any ideas guys

    Aoa ASAD : Wheel alignment & camber adjustment is done every week, at times i need to get it done 2 times a week. The general tightening of suspension has been done many times, this did not help.

    Steering ends have been changed, I had to leave the car at the "Local Mac" for 3 days cause the "Air Mass Sensor" had gone bad & needed replacement, well we had to put a "Toyota Carola" sensor and the car is running fine. The Staring was repaired & coasted me 10k around 8 months back to get it fixed.

    Any thing else that could cause the swinging of the car right & left while driving? Please advise! Thanks

    @ Hash : I got the tyres changed 3 months back. Got Yokohama, so i guess that wont be the reason.

    @ Ocean : Comparing it with the same car & make, lot of difference! Feels like im driving a "Mehran".

    @ Ady : Its 55,000 km.

    Any Idea whats going on with my car? Please advise accordingly. Thanks Guys

    Aoa Arsalan, Buddy, i have gone through this phase as well with the Pak Suzuki personals coming over and trying to convince you that you are crazy and their is nothing wrong with their product! so please be clear & careful with them, they are good sales men!

    I have still to find a cure even after 55000 km

    Best of luck with the Suzuki Team, dont go easy on them.

    Prayers

    the reason for such behaviour are one by one...
    1. alignment along with camber and toe in.
    2. if above didnt solve the problem.... then the problem is with bushes of steering assembly. here is a check..." on parked car, engine off, turn your steering right and left (upto half turn) and listen to any sound, even minor (very low in volume) DUG DUG sound is sign of worn out or broken bushes.
    get em replaced.
    mechanics at suzuki I-9 islambad are good to diagnose problems dont know which one are you consulting. but never go for suzuki azim in I-10.
    they are just S***t.

    best of luck, and please let us know the results of above test (if you do perform)
