Has anyone else had this problem? Its a pretty severe leak, leaving puddles...lol.

Also, can I insist the dealer replace both front struts in the name of keeping equal wear characteristics, and safe driving as leverage?

First time hearing 'bout it at least for me.

If you can wheezle two shocks out of this one from the dealer, then I'll be :shocked:.

It appears this problem is popping up in multiple places.

Mine - first cold snap (freeze) and the leak began. I have GC kit lowered about an inch.

Three other V owner's have contacted me in the last two weeks in regards to the same problem. 2 were lowered (one WW mod with the groove and one with Eibach) and one was stock ride height and springs, if I recall correctly.

Interesting...very interesting...

Doug,

My front left blew also leaving puddles, and the dealer replaced both fronts under wty. No questions asked. (See you Sat.)

my front left went also, stock springs, ride height, etc. only hotchkis bars....I never saw a puddle, but heard a clunk, they just replaced the front left....not the right side...only 16k miles though...I still dont see a big deal in only replacing one.

So, is there a common thread (and no, I'm not pointing any fingers) but is it possible that everyone with the failure has the same mod?

Like:

Hots bars
GC kit
18 lb. lead foot adapter
I can turn left but not right

etc...

Both of my front struts were replaced under warranty. Both were leaking.

Ours is stone stock as far as the suspension.

Thanx all for the help, to nikon, Our car has over 35 k on it, and if one is new the other not could cause an imbalance.

Not to mention, if one went, how long on the other one?
