    Coilovers for S15

    Does anyone's coilovers creak when they are turning at slow speeds or going to full lock?
    Mine creak, the softer i set them the more they creak...

    Any ideas?

    I use HKS Hyper Max D's - no creaking. Perhaps oil is leaking from your unit?
    What do you call a Rx7 with reliability, decent build quality and a better exhaust note? - a specR S15!

    I have a little oil leaking from my front passenger strut, its a tiny amount that doesnt even drip onto the floor the only time the sturt creaks is when i jack it up and the wheel lifts off the floor.

    Is this a problem?? Is it easy fixed?? (I'm guessing not )

    If your strut is leaking, it's a problem. You may need new wiper seals or the internal cartridge may be stuffed. The good thing with decent shocks is they're mostly 100% rebuildable. I'd get it checked out soon to prevent further possible damage.

    Teins seem to be getting a bit of a reputation for leaking at the moment...
