bbcobra. I too was not going to buy these do to the rusting issue. I figured 20k on them if that is true wouldnt be too much. He said he gave a second offer to the highest bidder that was denied. i asked his bottom line and i just went for it. I dont regret it, i figured i could sell the mounts and maybe the camber plates to cushion the price. I already have all the mounts.
There is a definite change from soft to firm as far as rebound. So that is a plus. A couple of the adjuster seals are seaping whilst turning. Otherwise after playing with them and over inspecting them last night they seem ok. They definitely werent babied.
If i have to rebuild i will most likely just buy new as its a 25 dollar per corner difference. at least now i can buy the fronts and then the rears or vise versa in the future So its not one big price.
But thanks for the responses
