The buggy shined big time this weekend! John, you did a great job putting this rig together and the beat down you put it thru and the ability to drive it back really showed that, great work!

I think you should leave the struts the way they are. It makes for great entertainment.
What have they told you?

I called Monday at 4 and left a voice mail (they close at 5). They returned my call at 4:20Tuesday, talked with a woman, told her I thought I had 3 struts possibly 4 with bad seals, she stated I had to talk with Kurt to diagnose them before sending them back so she was gonna forward my info to him to call me. So I am waiting for Kurt to now call me.

They can be up to a certain degree, I am within that range. I guess they had a bad batch of seals + some QC issues with a couple employees around the time I ordered. They have since replaced said employees and gotten a source of different seals that are improved. Thats just hersay though.

Good, mine are there getting rebuilt/tuned/upgraded right now and I don't want to experience any of these recent issues.

I'd crawl up their ass about getting them diagnosed/shipped.
