Many Koni top adjustables leak fluid
Are yours leaking any fluid? My rear top adjustables leaked a while back and they were replaced under warranty. You should be able to get new ones if yours are really blown.
Lifetime on all Koni, I have heard that they
will find excuses not to honor like one guy up north had corrosion from winter, but otherwise the body was okay._______

I would try to get new ones before rebuilding
Mine lasted around 25k miles.
Koni declined the warranty because they were corroded, so hopefully you don't live anywhere that has corrosive elements.
Thank god I bought them from GC.
If they were Bilsteins and blown they would get...
warrantied. Bilstein does not play any games. The only exceptions I have found is damage. As a shop owner I have warrantied appx. 6 in the past 10 years. Never had an issue. To bad you bought Konis instead.Trent Cole, Tech Advisor, Lone Star Chapter, BMW CCA

Thanks Trent I was totally lost on
what was the better setup for me and it was between Konis and Bilsteins.You made the decision much easierhttp://forums1.roadfly.com/preferenc...php?img=137859[IMG][IMG]img=137859[/IMG][IMG]
How do I get mine warrantied w/o orig. receipt?
Call place you got them from. I'm sure they'll be
happy to fax / email you a copy of the invoice as proof of purchase.
Then you call Bilstein's warranty support line and start the process. Generally they charge you for the new shocks, ship them to you, and credit you when you send your bad shocks to them, as well as verify that they are defective/bad. If there's evidence of accident damage or something like that, they'll deny you, but they are generally very good about accepting and honoring their warranty, with no qualms.
Hope this helps.
Thanks all for the help....
So the only way to tell if the dampers are blown is to pull them or check for leaks? Any tips?
