    I used KZN Air Shocks in Ballito for my last batch.
    Great service and decently priced.

    Thank you Sythe ZN

    I had it there and then the gentelman mentioned that its an electrical issue that needs to be solved first.

    So the issue was a warning light came on, immediate suspension service required.
    Then the battery started draining overnight.
    I replaced the battery and now the front suspension dropped down and refuse to pick up.

    i took it to a guy that works with Jeeps in amanzimtoti on the 10th of Jan and he has ever since replaced the comfy box,and installed a new compressor,its been with him 3 months and the suspension still sags and the battery is still draining.

    I have been without this Jeep since the 20 December 2020.Im slightly frustrated but i know there is someone somewhere that can fix this issue.
    I have lost faith in this Jeep but it drives so nicely(when it does) that im almost willing to give it another chance.

    Yeah, mine was sagging as well. Thankfully no electrical issues though.

    I had worn through the front right airspring bellows, so replaced both front. Also did all the bushes in the front while it was apart and a full set of brake pads. They lasted pretty well in my opinion - almost 200k km which is not bad considering I'm hard on my suspension.

    After, while waiting for stock of lower control arms, I noticed it was dropping over the course of a few days. Took it back when the control arms came in and they found a leaking seal on one of the pressure lines which they sorted out no questions. Been fine since.

    I wish you luck, electrical gremlins are a pita.

    Hi I have a 2014 SRT and need a service. I am based in Pretoria. Is there somebody that you can recommend? The mileage is 90k.
    At the moment the battery is drained for some unknown reason and the alternator was just replaced a few weeks ago and strangely enough the drivers window is just not closing. I need a good reliable person to work on the car and fix it. Please can you recommend someone?
