I got a bit delayed doing the 30K service , as per Isuzu its minor and they only do the front hub greasing apart from the check ups.
I changed the oil, oil filter and fuel filter as well as i have a habit of doing this every 10k kms. Cleaned AC and Air filter, torqued suspension, cleaned the brake liners.
Also oiled the rear cover motor gears
Hub greasing and greased the upper arms, also grinding the upper arm cap slightly.
Hub oil seals
Old fuel filter, this was replacedthough isuzu has a 20k km interval
Cleaned the hub items with diesel, greased and put back
Thanks Iron Rock - I found RaceKraft in Madhapur Hyderabad doing Stage 1 remaps. They are handling all high end vehicles so my figo 1.4 tdci isn't a big deal for them. Cost is on the higher end though for a stage 1 remap. I would try them this week.
Some experiments dont exactly go to plan! The upper arms experiment is a failure!
I had put in custom upper arms from overland plateau an year back or so - while it took care of reducing the stress on steering - it didn't really help as i underestimated the physics side of it.
The upper ball joint was too close to the tires and i didn't have any negative offset alloys or didn't want to put in spacers.
I have gone back to the original arms - will need to keep an eye if it puts any unnecessary stress on the steering. It was never bad, but sometimes we tend to overdo it in enthusiasm! We fail, we learn!
