Leeper

Any body on here know a good way to get ahold of these guys? On Friday, one of my coilovers started leaking. I've called and left 3 messages on the phone number on their website. I've also sent e-mails to the address on their site, as well as the (personal?) address for Dave that i used when i orginally ordered the c/o's. So, any body have any other suggestions or anything? Seeing as how i've had these c/o's for a little over 2 months now, I'd really like to see about getting them warrantied or something. Thanks for the info/suggestions.

At the price they sold them for, I dont think there is an expresed warranty on them. Any local off road shop should be able to handle the rebuild.

I wish it were that easy for me. I've called just about every off road shop in the phone book here, and no one does rebuilds . The closest place i could find that would do it is either in Arizona or California.

Im not sure if any special tools are needed with the Leepers, but you may be able to do it yourself. Did you keep your old ones?

I really really really would like to say yes to this, but in all honesty, i'm not sure. I know i left them in my buddies garage when we put the new ones on, but what happened to them after that, i don't know.

I had problems with my Leepers too. I know Dave is a good guy but I have seen 2 others with problems plus mine. If anyone else has them, I would start to be seriously doubting the quality.

I took mine back and got me some Kings...more money but worth it in my opinion.

I dont see how they would be more or less likely to leak, than any other CO. They use the same internals as others. Im thinking there may have been a burr or a defective seal with those that have had leaks.

Been running mine pretty hard and knock on wood no leaking or anything.

They are alittle hard over the bumps, is that something someone could address when then need to be rebuilt later on?
