    Hi I've noticed one of my rear shock absorbers dirty with oil i think might be busted and it is noticeably rough in off road conditions. I am presently at 42000 KM (26000) miles.
    Questions is has anyone had that problem and dealt with warranty?

    Dealer just replaced both rear shocks on my 20 Sport (13K miles) due to oil leaks. When the truck is out of warranty, I will upgrade the shocks and struts

    An '18 should be covered under 3/36, no? Take it to the dealer.

    Dealer will replace it

    If your truck is covered in mud, dirt, leaves, pinstripes, and has a bunch of mods, I would at least give it a good wash before taking it in.

    Kind of like brushing your teeth before going to the dentist :anonymous:

    @Bishop84 I am in ontario. A wash wouldn't (edited) be a bad idea. Even tho its 2018 its pretty beat up and have been rough on it. But if it's fairly common I don't think i should have too much problem thanks people.
