How'd it blow out? Can't you just replace that one? What brand are they?

Im not sure, I guess they were already too old, dont know exact mileage on them since I bought them used.
they're ksport; I thought of that and looked into it but the new unit looks different from what I have, I could afford a whole new set up but this is my daily and i think im going to wait until I get a new daily to go with coilovers.
Im actually thinking of going with teins and koni str.t shocks i think found a good deal, less then 500 for everything shipped.

Whats the drop for those Tein springs? You'd have to figure out if the those Koni str dampers go w/ the drop of those Tein springs. The Koni yellows work w/ a 2'' drop springs.

Koni yellows or Eibach's pro dampers for over a 1.5'' drop.

I don't believe those dampers will go that low, as far as blowing out. Maybe a 1.5'' drop but not 2''+. You sure you don't have the front & back mixed up= 2'' front & 2.3'' for the rear? I'd use Eibach's Pro dampers for that kind of drop or Koni yellows. Hit up Jilian at the Tirerack.

Contact K-Sport and ask how much a new shock would be...

7. Can my coilovers be rebuilt and how much does it cost?

Our coilovers are rebuildable, however it takes far less time to replace the entire shock unit with a brand new one instead of you taking them out of your vehicle, sending them to us and we disassemble them and replace any necessary parts. You are more than welcome to send in your coilovers so we can inspect them or you can use our extensive online store to source out which parts you may need if you are the DIY’er and want to minimize downtime and swap out the parts yourself. Brand new replacement shocks can be purchased for $135 each + shipping.
