Replacements are $350 per corner IF you can find them, and GM has managed to make these awesome little PITA harnesses that you almost have to destroy to connect the magride to the car.

If you go coilovers (which I guess I'll have to here soon), you'll need the magride deletes which run $400+ to fool the car's computer into thinking you have it still or you get all kinds of neat CELs and it'll default to "Touring" affecting the steering, brakes, bi-modal exhaust etc. Yay GM quality.

So a 1LT Z51 C8 is just a few $k more than a ZL1 1LE..hmm..
magride fluid is abrasive, its inevitable that they will leak.
