Doesn't sound too good Dan. There would usually be a seal there to stop the oil when you twist the adjuster. Best to tell the crowd you got them off and see what they say

Went up to Tuning Factory to tell them the problem and they said they would replace them for me no problem. i think i remember i got the last set he had in stock and they were the old model. Hopefully the new ones don't have any similar issues or ill be well pissed!

The drivers side front and rear are leaking the worst:

The damp spots are the oil from the coilovers :?

Thats bad alright. At least they will replace them. Cant be the first time it happened to say they offered to replace rather that trying to say that you did something wrong and damaged them yourself. Make sure they get the newer ones for you

Well from what i can see the actual coilovers weren't replaced in full , he said 3 of them were gone and he replaced them, but the coilovers are still the first ones i bought. You can still see the dirt etc . Maybe these coilovers are serviceable and he only replaced the shock. Im confused. going to go back to him in the morning and ask him exactly what he did replace. Seems to be driving better anyway. Time will tell!
