      Why one need a suspension modulator to increase gc of linea? One can get GC kit from FASS and get it increased easily and still corner like a linea ( ignore the minor body roll as you will get used to it soon)

      I can relate to the OP when he talks about the ping pong nature of the Baleno, because even the Ciaz behaves the same way!

      This is only when car is fully loaded.

      It is too bad that it gives travel sickness over long distances for people sitting in the rear.

      Am planning for these suspension modifiers, probably the roger abs one. People have tried it in cars like Civic and Verna with good results. The new age Marutis also join the same bandwagon due to the lousy rear suspension.

      Usually they have high tyre pressure for TD, newer cars. Reducing tyre pressure can make the ride more comfortable but will wear little more and longevity might be affected. But still unless you are going for some vacation or long driver. Setting it it lower than recommended is not a bad thing for comfort. Getting better quality tyres will also help. But suspension is the main problem like most cars and this is normal behavior. I am not sure about any modification though

      He is not referring to bumpy ride, bumpy ride can be fixed by tyre pressure.

      He is referring to bouncy ping pong like soft rear suspension of Baleno which is evident when car is fully loaded. Not evident when u drive alone or with 2-3 pax at all!

      Hmm, I thought it was same for all cars. Din't know Baleno has a design flaw with rear suspension. May be it is not to big of deal and thus they do not care about fixing this

      No point using such gadgets from some unknown company. They are out to make the customer fell that he cant do without it. I understand that India follows the EU norms and regulations for motor vehicles but if you use them in the EU, they will shoot you. No dampers are allowed in between the coils of the suspension springs.
      Similar stuff is sold here but only for offroad use on unregistered vehicles. If you are stopped at a roadside control, they will remove your number plates, add some demerit points and give you a fine as a bonus.
      If the car underbody scrapes the speed breakers, your speed is too high.

      I am thinking if I need to continue with this forum.

      Mr. Moderator (if anybody) please look at the posts on this forum (including mine, I am sure you will delete this post of mine) before it gets published

      Thanks again for a great response and bright suggestion which NOBODY other than bhpistorqintorpm can provide and I believe this great person thinks everybody other than him are DUMB and a person who has done so much of research would not have tried test driving multiple cars(from different Nexa Showrooms and different Manufacturers) and evaluated the offers available on them.
      Satish, seriously!? Are you for real!? Looks like you were just waiting for someone to reply.. others have already put it right. Just for the sake of'politeness' let me explain:

      I said 'don't fret so much' = don't worry so much: to 'console' you because you seemed really concerned about the issue. And how would I know that you've already decided on this specific model. Now that's as polite add I can get for you.

      I read that first review and I think that Roger has written the review himself. I can do curves at 100 on the motorway with a car on 14 year old shocks and without his magic dampers.

      Thanks Turbocharged for understanding my question and providing me a hope, I will wait for your feedback after you get it fitted in your vehicle, it would be a valuable not only for me but for all others who own a baleno and are trying to improve the ride quality for themselves and thier co passengers. Have a Happy Diwali

      For once Mr. bhpistorqintorpm let me assume you were trying to give me an advice, Understand the points mentioned by me below:
      1. The Title for my topic was "Suspension Modulators are they good for your suspensions?" -- I did not see any response related to this in your answer!!!
      2. In my post I mentioned that I had been using an ALTO for 12 years, which means I am NOT new to cars or this is NOT my first car, No advice required on test driving from various dealers / Makes
      3. A Car for most people is for the entire family to enjoy (I leave out the uber rich who buy cars just to freak out), having said that Family feedback matters and has to be considered seriously (Somebody who has owned car for some time does a good research). With this in mind when I asked the knowledgeable members of this forum about how to improve the ride quality (by giving options which I was able to get from my research), I got a response asking me to go and test drive other cars, How relevant is this?
      4. A person understands there is an issue in a car which he likes, plans to purchase, does some research to reduce the ill effects of the issue and seeks advice from experts, the response expected is more on Pros and Cons of the suggested solutions and NOT go and try other cars.

      Apart from the above, when my response was harsh after seeing your reply,(Which I should not have done) there were other users who never tend to understand what I was asking but straight said I am here to pick a fight!!!!!.

      I am thankful to TurboCharged, KimiRaikkonen, Indian who have understood my point and have provided their views.

      Have a nice Diwali bhpistorqintorpm and all others who thought I am here to start a big fight.

      Thanks RageshGR, I totally agree with you, That is the precise reason I have posted this question here to understand the actual users feedback (if any), or there are many experts in these forums who understand the PRO's and CON's of modifications to the OEM parts, their inputs will be valuable.(in fact when I had to change tyres of my Alto I went through auto forums to decide before doing away the thought of upgrading it to 13" tyre)
      Have a nice Diwali RageshGR
