Had the dealer fix it.
started a rough ride, bouncing, and RLC failure to go off, or repediately going off, replace rear shock. Leaking.
I started back in Aug (and it's now March). That was probably 20k miles ago, but other than that and a few other problems I love the car.
Noise in front right when going up or down the driveway.
