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..
How much is an extended warranty? Id probably just opt for an extended warranty so if the suspension goes out, drive it in for replacement. Id have to imagine a good set of street coil overs for this car will run $4k plus. I guess you could always cheap out but that would be a shame.

That price isn't bad. Bilstein shocks are usually $1000+ for a set.

Which reminds me, there's a shop in Texas that's already setting manual conversions for the Supra!

Mine are not covered by the warranty because it's on springs and my brother was told they wouldn't replace them under warranty because he has mods, even though they're all power mods and none on the suspension. Tons of GM threads with all kinds of excuses used by GM on why they won't cover mag ride failures. A common one is the "seeping" from the struts is normal and not considered faulty or a failure.

All that being said, I won't mind going to coilovers eventually, I'll just find a good setting for them that gives me the same feel as the "Sport" setting which I'm in 80% of the time. Touring is way soft, but it closes the mufflers which is nice I don't want to be loud af, and the Track setting is just ridiculously hard and stiff for the street.

I'd like to see a wing delete on the C8 or maybe something like what's on the Camaro SS 1LE or C7 Z with a large lip like rear spoiler.

magride fluid is abrasive, its inevitable that they will leak.
