how is the shock body put together?? Is is just a shock, with a threaded collar over it, or is the shock body threaded? If the body is threaded, I would guess it is rebuildable. If it's just a shock, buy the replacement shock. It should be $60-75 for it. If you have a collar, and the set screws are on the top, you may want to consider flipping the collar over, or not tightening the set screws too much.A little more info, or a place to view the coilover would help.

I have 27,000 miles on my 0-3 inch D-Tech coilovers with limited(60 miles or so) of off road use.One is now leaking quite a bit of oil from the top.
The questions I have are:
1)Are these rebuildable?
2)Can I run them with no oil untill they crap out?(there seems to be NO noticable difference in ride right now)
3)Has anyone else experienced this failure with these coilovers,or any others?at this low mileage?
I just think it sucks to pay $555 for a set of coilovers and they crap out so soon!! :mad:
I would give them a call. My cheapo fabtech's held up to more than that.

cheap shocks go quickly....

you can keep driving it but your tires will get a funky wear pattern and ruin your tires...

contact them, see if they will repair them under their warranty.
