Because of the design on the front bilsteins is there not a potential for failure?
It appears that the coilover is only supported by a collar which is secured by a number of set screws. So in essence the entire weight of the compressed spring is resting on a number of set screws around a groove on the shocks....? Is this right.... And if they were to come loose or take a pounding they could slip causing the coil to slip. This would then eventually be seen by scratches on the shock as the collar and set screws slip downward.
I am looking at installing a Toyotec Ultimate 3" lift on my truck with the tires and rims to complete the package. However, I am having conflicts with the information local shops are telling me.
Has anyone had any problems or seen failure with this setup?
