Saw oil under the right rear tire yesterday. I was expecting to see a leaking caliper or brake line. As it turned out my shock is leaking oil.

I haven't hit any pot holes that I can remember. Maybe going down I-65 after leaving the Fest. That road is pretty rough! Anyone else have to replace their stock shocks yet because of a blown one?

I have a 7/70 warranty but refuse to take it to the dealer. They dropped a buddies C5 off the lift trying to change oil! :jawdrop:

I guess it's time to pay GM Parts Direct a visit and get some 04 shocks, unless someone out there has a set for sale?

Thanks for taking the time to read

Whats up Jub... I've got a pair of rears off my 01. PM me your address if you want them. I'll trade them for a " MY NAME IS JUB JUB " t-shirt. :D
KCMAGS,

You can probably get one of these easy enough there were around seven of us I think that had them. I would give you mine except I gave it to the real one and only Jub Jub! I saw him wear it once so it has been broken in. :D

Keith, thanks for the offer on the shocks but I think I'm going to order a set of 04 shocks.

No problem on the "My name is Jub Jub" shirt. I've got one coming your way! :thumb:

All is good... I was just kidding about the shirt. Everyone knows there is just one & only one JUB JUB.

How the heck are you EVER going to get any warranty work done?

Engine work...fagedaboudit! Since it's chassis related, I don't think they would say anything. Actually, there are some dealers that are pretty cool with moded vettes. They just want the warranty work!

A friend of mine picked up a 99 FRC. He got home and started crawling around under it and noticed both the rear shocks were blown.

What I meant to ask was this:

You have a 7/70 but you won't bring the car into the dealer for repair work. If you don't go to the dealer, how the heck do you ever get anything done under warranty?

I don't! :lol:

Fortunately, I haven't had to...yet! Oh and the 7/70 was a freebie, compliments of the General.
