I hope the new shocks take care of your problem. Hopefully they redesigned the mounts or something and that will be all you need. On the other end of the spectrum, I have had 3 sets of shocks put on--1)factory shock left side broken seal 2) next set left rear--comes loose-can grab it with my hand through the rear wheel and shake it back and forth 3) this set-left rear blown seal-leaks so much oil from shock it made puddles under the car 4) clunk still here but shocks are in one piece. Did I mention this started in Feb??
Sorry didn't mean to rain on your parade--I truly hope you are cured. I tell you this so that if it goes on a run like mine, it won't be too shocking (no pun intended-really)
