I got some fluid film for mine, so far I'm pretty impressed.

fluid film

Im thinking about using on the chasis (the website says it'll be good for a year).

Does the Fluid Film collect dust/dirt?

ANybody tried it long enough to see if it will fade color on the shock top caps or even yellowing the body of the shock?

I havnt seen any ill effects on my shocks. Anything it "Collects" will wash off by spraying with water when you wash truck.

I spray mine with wd40 or similar whenever I think of it. I just spray and walk away..

Interested in the fluid film stuff. I PM'd the guy on here that sells it but I haven't decided if I should call him and order it.

Waiting to hear what other people think of it.

I like the idea of fluid film. Wonder what the actual compound is?

For a lot of small applications of this type (battery terminals, bolts, etc.) I just manually apply petroleum jelly. Greasin' up yer whole suspension would be a major PITA though and attract too much dirt.

I say try the fluid film, or any kind of aerosolized petrolatum you can find.

I Boeshield T9'd the shit outta mine today. It's my first time using it, but it went on real nice. Spread itself out to a nice uniform glossy covering. I'm expecting good results, I mean it's fucking made by Boeing...
