XREAS shocks were leaking, dealer said needed replacement. Cost estimate $4500.00 Cheaper option was to just replace the XREAS system with regular shocks. XREAS system has interconnected shocks. I had a 7 yr platinum warranty which was going to expire August 2018. It covered the repair other than the $100 deductible and $100 for alignment. So they installed a new XREAS system. I lucked out with the warranty.
