Someone told me suzuki use the same shocks throughout the swift range; 1.0, 1.3 8v, gti etc and use different springs for gti. Is this true ? My front shocks are a bit ropey and Ive got hold of some off a s reg standard swift cheap, just would like someone to confirm this before I stick some lowering springs on em and use fit them on my swift

i can tell you that they will bolt and every one i have used with lowed springs have blown apart. but they will last a few months to get you out of trouble.

all of the different dampers will be matched to the type of springs
so gti dampers will be gti dampers, not 8v or 3 cyl, they might use the same casings but the internals will have different valve setups for the spring rates
thats why you should realy uprate the dampers when you put stiffer lowered springs on coz they wont be able to handle it, it might take a while but they will wear out alot quicker than with the std setup
you can get away with it more with the gti dampers as the std springs are lower and stiffer to begin with
