                              "I bought these 4 years ago for a rig that is still in progress, installed them, and the rig has been sitting in storage for the last 2 years(indoors).. I finally got back to working on it this winter, and find the powder coating coming off all the lower springs, and one shaft the chrome is coming off, with heavy rust bubbling through.. mind you these are shocks that have never been used, never seen dirt/mud/water/etc.."
