so what you think if I replaced after market Suspensions like Gabriel?Car has done 98k running.
Take a trusted mechanic along with you.Test drive the car.Make sure the gear changes are smooth.Check to see if you find any vibrations and other sounds.Check for leaks and rust in the body.Do a thorough inspection of the car.Check the AC and cooling.Hear the engine at idle, see if it sounds normal and there is no miss.Hear for misfiring and look for oil stains or oil paths.Looks for oil marks below the car.
Check the color of the engine oil.Does it smell burnt or does it smell like coolant.Check the color of the coolant, make sure there is no engine oil in the coolant.Check the spark plugs, make sure they are pink in color and do not have any oil deposits on them.Do the same for the gear oil.
Instead of Gabriel try to find Cofap suspension or even KYB these are much better.
For the price I suggest you take a look at what the other members have said.
