45k miles on the car and the back left shock absorber is damaged. The teeth on the wheel that connects to the actuator is broken/grinded down.

Ferrari says they can’t repair it but might be worth asking bilstein themselves. If I can get it repaired would it make sense to send in the other 3 also for refurb?

If it can’t be fixed do I replace both the rears or just replace the broken one?

Cheers

Indies probably fit Hills spare gear if I have understood correctly https://www.hillengineering.co.uk/actuator-gears/s...

Did this fix on mine years ago using the Hill Engineering part.

Easy fix to do and no specialist tools needed.
