    Smile Mahindra shock absorbers

    Hi guys. Is there anyone out there that has changed the shocks on a Mahindra SUV 4x4 ? We are going Botswana in March-April and with the roofrack, rooftoptent etc , i dont want to test the current factory fitted shocks in those conditions. I do know that LA sport for one is not to keen to help and just say that there are no OME, Ironmans etc availible for Mahindra and the only ones that can be fitted according to Hi-Q is the Gabriel Safari shocks.
    Any recommendations ?
    Thanks

    The Gabriel Safari shocks are much better than the std shocks. The front Camil shocks will only work if you have a 4x4, rear Camils very nice for they are adjustable to set the correct ride height if loaded.
    Have a look on their website & give Piet a call, very help full
    If you dont come right PM me,

    I took my Scorpio Pikup to the Camil guys. They told me that they can fit Camils to the front, but at the rear there is too little space for the coils that go around the shocks. It might be different for the SUV.

    Adriaan,
    Obviously the Safaris will be a lot cheaper than the Camils, a set of Safari will cost you around R1500 & the Camils R5000 for the set....

    Hi Guys

    I drive a 4x2 Scorpio

    I replaced my oem shocks with Monroe gas adjust in front and Monroe gas Magnums in the rear. I had to grind the rear mount points a few mm to get the beefy gas magnums in but it was worth the effort. I adjusted the front shock to the 3rd hardest setting. The vehicle now behaves predictably and bodyroll is alot less and more controlled.

    The spares place did not have any shocks listed for the Mahindra but I did some research and eventualy found that Toyota Hilux (not lifted) uses almost the same length shocks.

    Regards

    Was told today by Mahindra Silverton that there are no replacement shocks for my Scorpio 4x2 SUV and that I can only get them from Mahindra at R4000 incl fitment. I doubt it this is true as Supa Quick quoted me around R1000 fitment incl. Was thinking of getting those Safari's. Does anyone have the part numbers on Safari shocks?

    I just spoke to the manager of 4x4 Mega World in PE. They have done shocks on the Bolero and they have looked at the Scorpio and say it can be done.

    He suggests you go to Megaworld Menlyn and speak to Louis there, who's also one of our commercial members.

    It won't be listed in the catalogue, but they can take off your shocks front and back and look for shocks that has the same bolting configuration, of similar length and off a vehicle of similar weight.

    There is different part numbers available, I`m not sure if they are a 100% fit - maybe you need to do a small mod but I`ve got these:

    Scorpio SUV 2WD front: Safari:G56185 Technomatic:G45466
    Scorpio SUV 4WD front: Safari:G56173 Technomatic:G45871

    Scorpio Rear: G56102

    Hope this helps

    Just found out that Safari's are available with no modification needed. They sell at Midas for R1200 for all four. SupaQuick also fits the Safari's but I will have to wait until monday for new stock. At R1000 fitment included it is worth the wait.

    While on the subject of shocks:

    I'm not sure if it is the shocks, but when my wheels are turned sharply and I take off or I go over a bump, I get a creaking sound from my front suspension. Could it be the shocks or the A-Arms or what?

    Check your anti-roll bar connecting arms

    More suppliers will start to make shocks for Mahindra products as the Scorpio has been set for launch in the USA, even the retail price has been declared in the media.

    With more wheels on the road there will be more reason for suppliers to get into the parts business.

    Is the rear shocks for the pik up more or less the same? I need to replace my rear shocks. Will the safari shocks be fine for the 2WD?

    Where can I get the best deal in Johannesburg? Hi-Q seems to be the cheapest.

    I think its only the front shocks thats diferent between the 2x4 and the 4x4. The rears will be the same on both the pickup and suv. It will be a lot cheaper to buy it from Midas and fit it yourself. What broke off, take a picture of the broken part, will be interisting to see what and where it broke.

    Hi Stefan

    I fitted the following on my Scorpio 2.6 SUV 2X4. Very easy job and you can do it yourself. Bought my shocks from Autozone

    Front: Monroe Gas Part GT2028
    Rear: Gabriel Safari Part G56116

    I fitted the shocks beginning of December, got an incredible deal, all 4 shocks for R1000.

    The Monroes and Gabriels are much more beefier than the original shocks. I phoned around a bit and many places suggested to steer clear from Gabriels for the front, as the Mahindra is a very heavy vehicle, the Gabriels won't last long. As you might have seen, those front shocks are very small...

    I am very happy with the shocks fitted, drove a couple of bad gravel roads and the handling is great!

    Mario and everybody
    You also get dobinson that fit suv's and monroes work to for more than half the price than what us stealers will charge , only prblem is if the vehicle is still under warranty get permission or the workshop to put the after market shock in for you.
    i now most of youre vehicles do not have warranty any more so you do not have the problem.

    Mario who did you speak to about the shocks i would like to nock his head in for not listening to the customer and trying to sort the problem out for you in a dignified and reasonable way.


    cheers
