Got quoted $1100 for OEM replacements + $400 in labor, so I decided to go with an ICON kit at the same mechanic which saves 2-3 days and ~$300 in cost. Probably $1100 all said and done with the upgraded kit. Totally freak thing, I'll be filing a report but shit happens I guess.I have never seen that happen except for an old rusted out shit box a friend of mine used to have. And he was not gentle on that thing.
Your situation is definitely alarming but as others have said, how isolated is your predicament? Maybe you just got a bad one. Is it expensive to replace those?
I'm sorry you have to deal with that but you might just have to bend over a little bit and have it replaced. Great time for a rear shocks upgrade if you haven't already.
