My V2s come in this week and I haven't seen anything but complaint threads about the KWs lately lol. That's too bad about yours, hopefully it's not too bad.

It seems to me it'd be much easier for them to ship you the replacement part and bill you for it upfront and then credit this back to you once you send the faulty unit back to them. Now I'm on the hook for both the labor to uninstall and reinstall the coilover in addition to the cost of a rental car for God knows how many days the replacement part is in transit. Brilliant.

My stock suspension isn't looking so bad after all.
yep. it took about a month to get the part out and back to me. you can always either replace just one corner or both corresponding corners but then you are driving like a rake.

other option is to buy one (~$600 a shock) but then the front shocks are diff part numbers...rears are the same and you can have a spare
