I don't know anything about the Leepers, BUT you might want to see if they have any warranty you're still valid for.

Doubt that's possible after that whole ordeal that came up a while back. I won't mention it tho

To the OP: Try a local atv/bike shop

X2. If you threw them on the way they came, odds are, they were too high. How much thread is above the adjuster?

Well...Its not a big deal. Odds are, Dave will make it right. Otherwise, if you dont have a local off road shop, you should be able to send them someplace to have them re built.

It can cause both. From what I have found, the Leeper CO's were shipped with about 1.25" too much preload for a 3" lift. Then again, It could have been just a manufactureing defect.

Ashiet,
i got those coilovers during the quick sale to but haven't put them on yet. I live in Kihei so if I have any issues with mine you have some back up since we live so far away. I hope you paid through Paypal. Check with Inense Motor Sports Maui about recharge, also try check with Dominic over at Innovative Creations in Kaului Industrial. They have connections with the mainland.
