For those of you coil people in winter

Do you ever swap back to stock springs and shocks?
I'll be using mine has a DD for summer and winter. Someone told me coils + salt is a no no.

You just have more chances of dirt and grime to build up in your adjustment threads. Making adjustments impossible afterwards.

Proper cleaning on a weekly basis and you're good to go.

Get a car wash weekly and spray Rust-Oleum on the shocks every fall or end of summer and you'll be fine.

I've seen people coat the entire threads of the coils with anti-seize. It works well actually.

Search for a product called Boeshield, developed by Boeing. Sprays on your CO threads to lubricate and protect.....won't wash off with heavy enough application.
