    The kit is readilyabailable at Balaji motors Thane. The punto kit is 10800 but then there are other parts that need to be changed and also the cost of labour. The total works out to around 15k in all.

    If you need I can give you the number of the as from Balaji motors and you Can book your kit

    Guys- Today i visited Balaji Motors, Thane to enquire about GC kit for my 2010 MJD Linea. He said its going to cost me anywhere near 18,000 rs to 24,000
    which is day light robbery i think. instead i will drive my car and change the engine guard in future.

    :(

    I guess after upgrade, it should be much easier to go over speedbreakers or undulations or bad patches even if fully loaded. One need not be that cautious.

    However, can anyone share or give their inputs after GC upgrade on any changes observed on the following

    - ANy change in commfortably taking sharp curves at or above 130 KMPH

    - Any increase in Body Roll and pitch for the driver or passengers while taking sharp turns

    - ANy change in braking behavior at different speeds?

    - Any change in "feel of control" when going over unexpected undulation or rough patch or over sheet of water, at high speeds ?

    - Any change in high speed dynamics or any feel of "floating" at high speeds? Essentially do we still have that rock solid planted feel on the road even at high speeds?

    - Any change in steering response especially at hgh speeds?

    Hi!
    I got the new ground clearance kit installed on my Linea MJD from ABS motors gurgaon on 13 May. I was really impressed with way they carried out the modification. It was done very professionally. There is no change in the handling of the car. I compared the GC with a Linea without mod.... a full 3 cm difference! Costed me around 15K.... Now there is no speed breaker too high for my beauty! Strongly recommended for a tension free drive to any part of the country!

    i am planing to go for the upgrade, just wanted to know. If suspension becomes softer what are the pros and cons? to the present linea..how much the roll and pitch are going to effect the whole experience.

    I just drove across uttaakhand after getting the new GC kit fitted. I drove all the way to badrinath. those of you who have been there would agree that the road does not exist for the last 10 kms. but thanks to the new kit, my car did not touch the ground even once. I feel this upgrade is really a must for those of us who like to drive and explore.:D

    Hi, I have been searching for some information about the Linea GC kit. I own a 2010 Linea Emotion.

    Balaji Motors Kalyan have said 11K for the GC kit and 4K labour.
    They are also saying "strut pads" mostly need changing, otherwise there is extra noise. This will increase cost by 6K.

    Are these "strut pads" really required? For few mm of ground clearance, is 21 K worth it.

    I require help urgently. Please reply!!
