Run, but run quickly. There is a difference between the coupe and the Vert, but both Mag shocks. The Coupes are all FE5. Besides if they did cheap you out and replace with a non mag shock you would throw a code on the DIC because you need to terminate the 5Volts to the shock harness.

Also, if they replace with a non mag ride shock, the car throw a code that will limit the speed of the car to 85mph. Found that out on a track day after switching to coilovers.

What extended warranty do you have that covers the shocks?

They are expensive for sure. If you need a set we can get you a better deal then the dealer on a set of 4 oem shocks.

Remember if you buy OEM verify the dealer you purchase from is covered under Delco's limited lifetime replacement as everyone isn't and those that aren't cant do a return claim. I have replace the rears twice under this warranty.
