Has anyone seen this before?????

This happened today while driving 55-60MPH. It made a sharp left (i thought i would have made a right) towards the guardrail. The coilovers have less then 10k on them and i got them back in oct 08 so they aren't that old.

Fixed! lol

Yeah that could have been a major catastrophe glad it didn't turn into another "hey tst I wrecked my car today!" thread. Did you get the coilovers directly from K Sport or a website?

seen it a bunch of times with subarus. I cannot recall which brand it was but the rear coilover would break at the flange during high g turns (usually on the track).

I've seen Ksports do this before, but not at random like your coilover seems to have done.

It took a high-force impact to do this on a tC in the same manner, one that was strong enough to crack a wheel.

When I get the money, I'll be switching to a proper suspension setup consisting of Koni Yellows and Eibach springs. I've had enough of the issues that surround cheap coilover setups.

Did the threaded piece break in the base or was it just not threaded far enough in and strip out? It's hard to tell from the pics.

If you want some help, give me a call tomorrow. We're an authorized K-Sport distributor and can potentially help you out.
