      I don't know anyone who has tried that yet. Let us see what the others have to say.

      Won't it better to get aftermarket springs?

      I don't know if the struts would be different. The springs of course would be stiffer.
      Zen D had same struts as the Zen P. But the coil was stiffer.

      If you are looking for suspension mods and swift then u r really blessed with options. I wouldnt bother with any swaps because the change would not be significant.

      Save up and get good suspension. If you ask me I would buy the swift just to put some nice suspension on it. One more question is how much has you car run?

      Re: Strut swap of swifts

      my stock struts are sitting idle. want to try before you buy a new set? I'll hand them over tomorrow. they will not run for long, because I've given them a good hammering over 30k kms. but you'll get an idea of whether its worth it.

      @crazydiablo- I think this car we're talking about has run in excess of 80k

      My car has done 90k kms as of now and is exactly 3 yrs old now. Slapped an exedy stage 1 few weeks back and so wanna really push her to see the differance. For this, I really want atleast a better suspension so that the car holds well on the road on sharp turns. Anyways.. now as ripper offered his old ones.. lemme see what and how it happens.
      Many thanks for your input mate.

      Is the handling characteristics not good already in the swift? It does come with RBS right so then are the dampers not adjustable?

      our dear mallu stig always maxes out the performance of the car. he always wants more and uses all of it, and more.

      I've never reached the limits of the swift's cornering abilities. dont have the guts.
      the diesel dampers are stiffer than the petrol. thats why this experiment.
      the stock dampers are not adjustable. neither are the springs

      Swift is one car that handles really well to ones requirements. I have tried some serious and hard tests with my swift when shod with Neovas. Now I have exedy too.. I believe there is more to test
      lets wait and see
