    Performance 20" with wheels spacers

    i think 15mm in the front is ok rear maybe will need 25mm. it all depends on the type of stance you want. Try to measure from your fender to the rim and see how much gap you have and then buy spacers from your measurements. I used a plumbob to measure from the fender to the rim.

    Rumbling noise when braking after hitting a curb

    Is the noise you're referring to the ABS actuating? The symptoms you are describing doesn't correlate to any curb damage.

    Performance 20" with wheels spacers

    Those spacers would have your wheels sticking past the fenders about 12mm. I personally use 15mm in the front and 20mm in the rear. The front is just about flush with the fender and rear is slightly tucked in.

    MPP AWD/Performance Coilover Impression and Installation

    dfwatt, that nipple doesn't sit flush on the bottom of that cavity,. Inside the fork you'll see a tiny lip where it slides over the damper and meets a lip on the damper. Sorta like the L shape blocks from Tetris. If you look carefully through where the fork clamping bolts are, you can see where...

    Suspension problems. OEM dampers are failing.

    Thanks David for the info but at this point I’m beating a dead rotten horse. Tesla will pretty much do anything to find any reason to deny warranty claims.

    Suspension problems. OEM dampers are failing.

    I only tested the rears because they take about 10-15 minutes to remove. Dyno results has already been posted but here it is again. First pic shows a good damper compared with mine. Same part number and revision. Second picture shows the dyno results of both rear dampers.

    Performance suspension possible manufacturing defect and confirmed failure. Tesla will not fix.

    Check this tread to get a background info. Suspension problems. OEM dampers are failing. I don't know about the other models but if you have the performance version, your suspension might be bad. So far my and a friend's suspension is bad. Not too sure about the front but the rears are bad...

    Suspension problems. OEM dampers are failing.

    Car is at the service center. But I know I'll be happy with them. I hope to install them this weekend. Last update. I got a call from the service center. Told me that the dampers needs to be replaced but will not be covered under warranty because I have an aftermarket non tesla approved tow...

    Suspension problems. OEM dampers are failing.

    The shop said its a twin tube design. I doubt they wore out but I do believe there was an internal failure. Either a fastener came loose, assembled incorrectly, or something broke. The comparison measurement is from another customer's damper. It has the same part number and revision. It is an...
