      Suspension upgrade for the Ikon

      The front suspension of my Ikon has become weak and has started making noises.

      I am starting this thread to find out what are the options I have got other than OEM. My requirement is better handling (not that the Ikon handling is bad) and better build quality to withstand some spirited driving.

      I am a total noob in this field to even know what I should be looking for and what will be the cost of a good aftermarket suspension kit.

      Please help! I need to do this ASAP. Although the Ford SA says I can go for another 10k kms, the noises are driving me crazy.

      Doubt there is anything aftermarket available for the Ikon in India.

      Maybe you can look at Bilstein/D2 Racing/Koni international websites to see If they have anything listed. Don't have access to a PC or could have looked it up for you!

      Don't go for any jugaad work. Either pick up branded aftermarket springs & struts or just stick to OEM.

      Hunh? You mean compatible? B6/B8s are pretty nice. Stiffer stuff but not adjustable like the B14s. These are the ultimate stuff you can buy here. Cost 70k+ but work very well and Peter offers a life time warranty on the suspension. Which is a great thing. If I were to ever swap suspension on the Cruze Bilstein B14 is what I'm going to get. Waiting for the current set to start giving up.

      Yes that is for sure. Only branded stuff for me. I'll put up a pic of the condition of my aftermarket headlamps in another thread. OEM is expensive for a reason.

      Called up a few people and searched the net. No solid leads.
      Hence dropped off the vehicle to the Ford A.S.S. for suspension overhaul.

      Please close this thread.
