Strut problems after H-Tech install
I recently installed a set of Tien H-Tech springs onto my 08 LGT with stock struts.(38k miles) After the install I drove the car for about 4-5 days with no problems then I noticed a puddle near the right rear tire which was fluid from my right rear strut. I then started noticing a clunking noise at slow speed over bumps. Strut was bad. I just replaced both rear struts with KYB replacements and drove the car for about 3-4 days and noticed a puddle at the left rear tire which is fluid form the NEW left rear strut. Has anyone had issues with stock struts and H-Tech springs? I chose these springs because of the minimal drop and what I assumed would be an easy upgrade to my car. Now Im battling struts leaking. Please chime in with any similar issues and possible resolutions. I have changed springs before on numerous other vehicles, even subarus, never had this happen. Help?
