Blown Rear Koni FSD

postby bannyd » 10/30/13 @ 16:56

Soooooo my shit is blown out on my passenger side rear...
its really quite frustrating actually -- the sound is horrible going over a bump or even just a rough patch of road.

anyway -- i'm going to see if i can get it replaced under warranty
has anyone dealt with Koni in this aspect? Or does anyone have any insight with how this works??

Any help would be great!

thanks phaggots

surprised you don't know exact amount considering the effort you put into synchronizing mileage with trip meter.

Still, 50k seems short for quality shocks that haven't been track abused.

bump on this
i'm meow re-thinking the blown strut theory and possibly going with control arm bushing or something along those lines - its just clunking around
there has to be about 1/4 inch of play because when i'm driving, ANY little bump makes this thing rattle and clunk -- it actually sounds more like my muffler is hitting the body of the car - but i just replaced my exhaust like... last week -- so i know its not that

has anyone had this problem?
