Hey all,

I recently purchased a 2003 SRT4. it came equipped with Mopar Stage III coilovers. I have very limited knowledge of suspension maintenance, so I figured I would turn to the internet for help. Today, while driving along normally, I noticed that the front end had become noticeably more bouncy. Nothing violent, but enough to cause me to take pictures and ask for advice. I poked around inside the wheel well, and noticed some fresh fluid leaking down. I have never taken a careful look under here before, so I don't know if these two are correlated at all. maybe someone can share a similar experience/solution. Thanks for all your help.

The seals in your coilovers blew which explains the oil in your wheel well and the bouncy ride. Most likely do to improper installation.

They can be rebuilt. Give them a call at 1-888-713-5566 for a quote and estimated turn-around time.

oh boy. switching out some stock components while I wait for these to get repaired. this sounds like an incredible adventure.

Edit: Who are these KW people? do they make or repair the mopar stage III coilovers?
