Default Rear Tein Flex coilover (5x100)

I'm trying to replace my rear passenger side Tein Flex coilover due to the lower bracket piece seized onto the damper.

I'm only interested in non leaking/blown rear passenger Tein Flex coilover for 5x100 bolt pattern.

PM me with details. Thanks all

I appreciate the feedback guys.

I guess I worded it wrong. The coilover is off the car. Upon removing I was cleaning debri etc off the dampers and making sure I was able to adjust all the components.

It was then I noticed the lower bracket of one of the coilover was seized and would not adjust. I've soaked it in WD40 for weeks now and absolutely no play at all. Took it to a few shops hoping they would have better luck with their expertise but no luck.

I'll contact Tein tomorrow and see what they have to say.

Tein will tell ya send it in. As they usually do.

Yea I'm afraid to try heat. Tein will definitely have me send it in. I'll explain my issue and see what they have to say.

Thanks!

I heated my old jic's to the point they were glowing red to break them loose with no problems. Just try it. Worst thing that could happen is they'll leak and then you have to send them in to Tein anyways. Anti seize is your friend especially if you run them in winter
