Koni Shocks.... Problems?
I am wondering if any of you have had this problem....
Was drivng along a couple of days ago and my 75 develpoed a big cluncking noise in the rear. Upon inspection i found that the threaded pin on the bottom of my shocks (which are Koni sports so we are dealing with supposedly good shocks) had cleanly sheared off.
This came as a shock as my car is not driven often and these shocks have only been in for 11000k's ... incidently they have no stone chips, no scratches or any other blemishes at all.
When i removed the shock the bottom of the shockindicates only a small amount of metal fatigue .... as the thread is about an 8-10mm thread it had maybe only 3mm of newly fatigued metal (shiny stuff)
Does anybody have a take on this situation?
