yeah mate they will fail all the time, the bush that hold the shaft in place is so small, very hard knocks or time break it down, and you get the rattle/nock.

solution is to put aftermarket shocks on, or a mod'd sti shock which scoobyclinic have been looking at doing (tool was stupidly expensive so not sure if they have gone ahead)

tbh after seeing what an sti shock is, suposedly thicker, it is infact the same piston reversed in the case!!! (know this cos seen one disasembeled)

so best bet, kyb shocks or similar
