Unhappy Blown front struts ....

So I noticed that my front tires were wearing near the outer edge
( the same place on both sides ) and brought it in to the dealer. They found that both front struts had been leaking and will replace them on Wed. I bought it Nov. 2010 and it only has 11,300 on the odom. 18 months in and having never seen a dirt road yet = bum deal for me.......
The tires are Michelins .......... Vroom vroom .........

Re: Blown front struts ....

Just noticed a blown rear right shock absorber on mine while installing the Corsa exhaust... with 1K miles. Geez. Need to check the front ones too. Will call dealer to see if they can order the darn thing without asking for the truck first. Even a monkey can diagnose a blown shock, full of oil while everything else around is bone dry. But let's see if dealer takes my word for it . Good luck man.

Re: Blown front struts ....

WOW, a blown shock with just 1k, and I thought my strut issue was weird. The dealer replaced the struts today and I had them change the oil while it was there.....
