    So as everyone knows i have Racing Logic "Ultra Complex" coilovers... the front two are leaking oil.

    Spring rates are 8kg front, and 6kg rear.


    a few has suggested reaching out to k-sport for replacement cartridges, but honestly i am not sure where to even begin looking. i've sent a few emails to RL and nothing back yet.

    the coilovers retail for ~1700 new so ... yeah im not buying new ones.

    so update!

    spark motoring - racing logic only US RL vendor now.

    they can get the complete kit replacement new 4 coilovers for 1200 plus shipping. their guy is checking out if RL sells the shock cartridges or just two front replacements.



    if anyone can find me a place i can get the cartridges and/or rebuilt for cheaper i will give a $25 finders fee.

    THANK YOU!

    a reputiable shock rebouider in your area should be able to rebuild them.

    looks like you are too slow, just got an answer back:

    Hi there,
    Sorry for the late, i just got the answer from Racing Logic, they can sell only the cartridges 140$ each. + air freight
    i just notice that you have a helper spring ... because Racing Logic doesnt have helper spring....

    Let me know..
