Everything was running fine until I started to notice some metal sound from the right front end. It can only be heard while passing through a bad patch or un even roads. Initially I though it was the lower arm and later it was found that the right strut was kaput and it was leaking badly, I must say very badly.
Got an appointment at Peninsular Honda for the next day.
Damaged Strut removed.
Even though they had these spring clips, dismounting the springs from the old strut was still a task and took around 15-20 mins.
Right Strut price : 2471
Refitting everything back.
..and then came to know that the left lower arm bush started to wear off. Since they had the part readily available and the car was already on lift, asked them to change it as well.
New lower arm.
Lower arm price : 1231
Back in place.
Came back home and since I was running around a week with the faulty suspension..the oil was all around the alloys. I couldn't control myself. Removed all four wheels and gave a pampering session. Cleaned up the wheel well areas to the max reach.
..and the final bill amount. Left strut was out of stock and I need the car running asap
. So will change the left strut once the stocks arrive. Changed the suspension bush as well. Check out the GST
for these parts. 28%
I must say the prices of these parts are great considering the competition!
