e34 sls strut leaking

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Looking over my car today and noticed the rear SLS strut starting to leak.  Does anyone know of anyone that can rebuild these in NZ?  Also does anyone know of where I can purchase another one used or new?

Cheers

Eddy

actual these might not suit as they are edc as well , new cost well over $2k each .

new ones that are not edc are about $500usd each

guys in Russia rebuild them etc

or you could convert to no sls type , need , std touring springs and touring shocks .

Ya I was going ask if you can send through some photos.  I've read that the m5 sometimes came with edc in the rear also and sometimes they came with just sls.  The sls m5 strut did however look different from that of the regular e34 but could be swapped between the two vehicles.  Can you snap a photo of a strut and send it through?

Also saw there are some guys up in Poland that rebuild them.  I was going to contact some shops in NZ first to see if anyone would give a whirl as shipping would be a lot easier and then may try europe if im not successful.  I am pretty keen to keep the SLS system.

Also let me know if anything comes in that you know may work.

Cheers
