So if the MRC and shocks are replaced/fixed on our 15s, can we assume they will then work like later years are working? Meaning not break at 40k miles?
:winkMy uneducated guess, though the data collected by Tanis (and anecdotally stated by CB750,) suggest a bad lot or two of rear shocks put in the 2015 production cars. The rest of us still have a chance of failure (even the 2014 purists), but much more unlikely than with a 2015. Replacement shocks “should” be free of the problem as well.
Regardless, my low mile 2016 has 2 brand new just-produced-in-Mexico rear shocks in waiting if I ever have a problem. Could be expensive and unnecessary insurance, but that come with the territory with the SS IMO.

The supplier did not stop making them.looking at the numbers, I gotta wonder .. is time a bigger factor ?
as with the EPS, fails seem to increase significantly after 24 months ?
does anyone know why the strut supplier stopped making the mag struts?
I assume it was a contractual decision ...
yes, I would guess mine started deterioating in the mid 30,000s, unacceptable for a supposedly superior suspension. seriously debating junking MAG ride and going coilovers.Confirmed, rear struts leaking. 2015 model right at 40,000 miles though issue began around 38k if I had to guess.
Yep, i located these and most likely will be using these.yes, I would guess mine started deterioating in the mid 30,000s, unacceptable for a supposedly superior suspension. seriously debating junking MAG ride and going coilovers.
What I probably will do is just replace the rear struts for now since the fronts are still good, once the fronts go I will go coilovers. Maybe at some point in the future someone will offer a rebuild kit for the mag ride struts once out of production, probably wishful thinking but you never know.
So how are the leaks found?Excluding the 14 cars, I have a 15.. FL105089. Rear shock problem @ 15k Miles,replaced, now at 44k and still going.. 16 cars GL214275 and GL214279.. Sold 279 @ 20k with no issues...275 is @ 46k and no problems. Have a 17 HL310881 and it nears 10k with no problems.. Our service department services many of these cars. So far only my 15 is the only car I encountered with a shock problem, and it was odd as there were no evidence of leaks.
