Okay, I understand!Alex,
you are entitled to your opinion.
I disagree with them on a number of fronts.
fwiw The OEM shocks aren’t available, I can’t simply drop a set in, as I don’t have them. I can possibly get one for the corner, but that is only corner, not a set of four.
The thread on the shock shaft is damaged and is retained by a reduced number of threads... furthermore those threads are damaged. the Loctite will stop if from loosening, but won’t stop the threads from failure. if the shaft is pulled down due to a sudden unload of the rear suspension, the shaft may pull out again, that is where the risk is.
I was very very lucky the first time this happened, it was a straight stretch of road minimal traffic and a place to pull over... if It happened elsewhere it could have resulted in the loss of the vehicle, other vehicles and possibly involved significant injuries... especially if it occurred on a racetrack at speed whilst driving in close quarters with others, which is one of the reasons I have this car.
But as you will get a new shock anyway and nobody is questioning the failure and you don’t have to send it back what normally is the case, you are free to modify it in the meantime to any spec you want in order to secure the nut. So recutting treads even to a smaller scale or securing the nut with a couple of welding points from falling off is allowed and possible. Every other thinkable solution in order to be able to drive in the meantime by the way too. I probably would have gone that way.
I wasn’t aware that you don’t own the original suspension anymore. I always keep all original parts just in case I want to rebuild to stock in the future.
Like I wrote in my first sentence. Sorry for me getting upset in my last reply. But I still can’t see any kind of wrongdoing or wasting time from Squadra Sportiva. If the manufacturer KW will not deliver there is nothing they can do. Ripping apart an existing suspension set and take out one shock is not an option. It is an unrealistic expectation. Nobody would do that for good reason.
