On my way from work yesterday, and getting off on a off ramp, and all of a sudden the car veered to the right. Didn't loose control, but moved over about 10 feet. Babied the car home, and this is what I found. I put these struts on in Aug of last year. No tracking, or accidents/Potholes. Not even any real aggressive driving. I have had alot of Koni products before without ever a issue. Looks like the ear was missing some welding, and was only welded at three points. I admit I didn't notice the lack of welds when I installed them. Ordered a full set of Koni Yellows, and will check them over real well when they get here.
