Hello All,

Im from Richmond Hill, Ontario. I owned an 2012 Suzuki Kizashi SLS, with 65,000km. I have one problem, that is one of my rear struts is leaking, and out off warranty. Anyone ever have these problem. This is a TSB # TS 01 05223, only for the U.S. Anyone within 3 years 60,000 km check your struts for leakages.

Just replaced my rear struts yesterday, cost me about $100 and took an hour. It's not that big a deal if you do it yourself.

Were yours leaking from the TSB issue? I recall you bought the countermeasure bump stoppers ahead of time. Also, have you got your Kizashi serviced for the spider recall? I'm thinking about taking it into Wheaton soon. They did my rear shocks under warranty.

I didn't see any oil leakage, but the shafts were corroded under the bump stops, probably one good bottoming out incident from a leak. I was hoping for leaks as I've got a clunk back there, guess it's the exhaust and I'll have to screw around with that some more.

I really despise all of these speed bumps around here.

I put a bit of rag over the end of the vent tube, it's right there next to the shock, you just have to take the inner liner off.
