Need a shop to fix coilovers

My rear right leaked and I'm am looking for a local shop that can do the rebuild. Can anyone recommend a shop either they have got something similar done with good experience or know of any shops that can.

Thanks in advance.

You would usually bring it to the dealer to get it fixed.. eg Bilstein, you ship to your dealer and they would take care of it for you (usually if it is generic and in production models they would swap a set with you).

Shipping it back to the manufacture will take some time. From what I understand these are not hard to rebuild if its done with proper tools knowledge. So at this time i am interested in any local shops that can do the job. Any suggestions?

I would try Momentum or Garage5 (Tein dealers).

Either way the car will be out of commission unless you have another set.

Price list:

i honestly dont know of anyone locally that rebuilds them

i would try looking at industrial places, like that do work for construction vehicles. maybe they can point you in the right direction.

otherwise deal with a dealer, a lot of the sponsors on here are tein dealers. Advance, MF are a couple that come to mind that are tein dealers. they will most likely call tein up to have them do the rebuild.
