well not happy camper Sad

got the phone call both front strut ****** along with top mounts not covered by warranty as had eibach springs fitted + saying that the bolts had been cross theaded on top of strut Sad

good news is we can get struts in tomorrow BUT bad news cant get top mounts for 4/6 wks so cars would be off rd Shocked Shocked

then the price came !!!!!!!!!!!!! not a hope in HELL No No

so rang around & ordered a set of bc coilovers it works out cheaaper fitting these than two front struts & top mounts from dealer

all well should have them tomorrow big thanks to louise at apex performance for help so should be fitted thru/fri then will have to take it steady till i can get it set up right & alingment done nx wk

I fitted Prodrive springs to mine to be on the safe side.

well coilovers fitted friday & alingment done to today handles even better than before

NOW to try & get sorted who going to pay up 3 partys involved all blameing each other standing a £1100 lost so some one will have to couch up OR LEGAL action will b called for

got wheel alingment FOA off one party which would have been on top of what its cost so far but still stand a lose , what i had saved for my new wheels has gone till i get something back or may be dealer will give me aset of GT 1s foa lol

To be honest with you here mate, I wouldnt bother trying with the dealer i work for they arnt to blame on this occasion.

Either Company:- A who fitted the springs are to blame for over tightening the strut nut on the top mount and it has stretched the threads and pulled them.

or Company:- B who stripped the car the nut has picked up on the threads and it has subsiquently stripped the strut.

sorry to hear of the problems


its the reason i tend to stick to subaru own branded mechanical stuff so they have little comeback with 3rd party stuff failing warranty parts!!!

coilovers will certainly change the whole feel of the hatch for sure, which ones did you go for, and what colours?

Got a rumble and knock from my front suspension (standard) going over uneven surfaces, dealer changed the drop links and anti-roll bar bushes but still the same, personally I think it is the struts. Will have it checked out. Very dissappointing after only 8,000 miles. Anyone else had this?

sorry to hear that bud

if its strut & every thing still standard it should be covered by warranty Exclamation but if changed any bits springs, antiroll bars then they will try & blame them for fault.

mine was strut theards & blamed haveing eibach springs fitted

hope you get sorted bud

I used to work in a non Subaru dealership, if I had sold a car with a non standard part I would either have replaced it with the standard part again before the car went for sale or made sure it was covered by the dealership to manufacturers warranty standard, customer care, repeat business etc. In the long run he would more than get back the cost of the repair.
