    Now that's called useful information. Can we ask TASS to change hydraulic fluid back to the one in older cars then?

  2. Mine is a some 60 kg heavy car than current models not sure how that is going to affect but any new suspension will feel stiff initially and may be come smooth out a bit later ,but that is along with the springs.

    I just meant the material that is filled inside the damper

    Gas or fluid....

    But even the new ones are gas filled....

    In case of gas filled shocks......


    The gas would have been less compressible compared to the older ones ....

    Are we just guessing or we know this for sure?
  5. New ones are gas filed. Strut felt a bit harder to pull or push but I will be able to tell the difference when i take out the car for ride.

    I am not sure if you will get the suspensions replaced under warranty if your car has crossed 35K.

    New cars have a GC of 185mm as per literature. I am attaching photos of components being changed. Please note the shocks are +20mm than the old ones.
