Another update done to the car, had it lowered. The experience was very stressful and tiring and also seemed like a endless money pit until I took full control of situation.
I ordered coil-overs from a recommended facebook seller who was based in Peshawar and told him that my requirement is a soft ride, so the coils should be having a dampening option, then I want a 3 finger gap that go down to 2 and can increase to 4 all round when I want. He told me that he would arrange and get back to me.
So he went and sent me pictures and me being a complete novice thought that it was a good set, and I showed it to a few friends and they also said it seems to be fine, but we would know more on arrival. Well they came and to be frank, they were quite used, a boot was busted and there seemed to be an oil leak, but I took a 4 day guarantee that if any issue I would return them.
I got them fitted and there was an issue, the right shock was a leak, it sounded really bad on any rough roads with heavy clunking. Told the guy, he sent a replacement which was of another size and had a different top and spring. I changed the top and spring with the leaked one, and the shock itself was fine, but it had to be adjusted differently to be of equal gap to the left side. and the rear ones hardly had any adjust ability in them and there was a whole 4 finger gap at the back and two at the front.
After consulting with many friends, the only solution was to go to Peshawar myself and get them changed to ones of my choice because the seller told me that you send these back and I will send another set, that meant another 6k of labor of fitting back the genuines then again removing them and replacing them.
So long story short I went to Pesh, in the treacherous rainy weather, got them changed to my satisfaction and came back. Finally Allhamdulliah it ended well.
And a special thank you to Moiz Afridi from MotorTec, who did not have any involvement with the purchase I made but still came and spent the day with me and made sure I got satisfied for what I got and that no further money is paid by me for anything. I should have ordered from MotorTec but kismat I had completely forgotten about them.
The car was absolutely filthy, so gave it a nice wash and wax from classic detailers in PWD, also last weekend after fitting the faulty coils I got it washed from a service station, so swirls (facepalm) Uzair bhai at classic details gave it a round of megs finishing wax with the Rupes bigfoot DA. so now MA the car is great. just have to get the alignment done AGAIN (had it done from Pesh) because the steering is not dead straight.
Apologies for the long post/rant.
