How the hell!!!
My rear left shock has gone through wheel arch.
What i believe to be the end of the damper has punched a hole through the wheel arch!!!
I'm thinking how the hell has this happened!
As the shock springs back up the end of the rod moves away (out of the hole) and then back again.
Any ideas people, surely the damper hasn't punched through the top mount?

not yet, as havn't taken shock off to check the damage but can see the metal rod poking through in the boot.

Also just to clarrify something i have realised, the thread on the rod is longer than the stock shocks and therefore sits higher up in arch but can't work out why otherside hasn't doen this.
