    I had custom made seals manufactured to fit the existing units. I have seen the internals of units "fixed" by others and the internals had been modified to accommodate standard seals. Maybe that's the difference. Anyway let me know if you would like a set of these custom seals. I can send them to you and you can install them at your leisure in your old age once you get off the rigs !!

    Hi John, did not have mine fixed they are put away for now.Perhaps one day I'll fix them. When I did the switch all I heard was that failure was just around the corner for repaired units. You obviously prove that is not so. Regards ,Mike

    Hi Dave, I had my 4 stock shocks rebuilt about 18 months ago .Original springs were reused with no problems. Had them done by Koni with instructions to replace any bad parts. Regards,Mike

    Order is on the way. Thanks for the replys
    What about the other suspension springs on both front and back. Do they generally wear out ? my current mechanic is telling me that they should be replaced. Nothing has broken

I agree these are pricey.... do it once and forget about it.

    I fixed mine probably 4 years ago and they are still fine. Did you get yours fixed by that guy in Arizona? I have seen what he did. Not good.

    Rutlands has a set.  it's time to do all springs and shocks. Im going to try them and then rebuild the LL's at some point in the future.
    Thanks for the reply fred

    You will be happy with the shocks. I had the Monroe air shocks before the Koni's. My car rides a little softer with the Koni's.

    Im about to pull the trigger on a set of coil over replacements from T Rutlands. Any final comments on this solution ? Will keep the levelers and probably have rebuilt at some point. Any input will be appreciated.

    Mike, I adjusted the springs up pretty high. I am thinking that the other 2 rear shocks are weak leading to a soft ride. I want to check them before I do anything else. Fred

    All 4 springs should match. If they don't you will have a torque applied to the A-Arms.

    Fred ,have you given any thought to increasing the preload on the springs via the adjusting rings. Might be able to up it a bit without affecting the ride height. Mike

    As of 30 Apr 10 I have not received my levelers back from PSI.
    I am not concerned.
    Bruce has impressed me as a straightforword businessman racer.
    He has his priorities.
    I am not in a hurry.
    I have considered calling him and askng abou my parts.
    My car is in pieces, he is not going to go away, why bother.
    I am confident that if Bruce says he can fx my parts, he can do so.
    If there is any evidence to the contrary, I will be the first to annouce it.
    Regards,
    JackW

    Wil, I installed them and have driven the car. The springs are 150#. The car seems a little soft in the rear. I might try a stronger spring. I need to pull the other rear shocks and take a look at them. Installation was very easy. Fred
