How strong are coilover adjuster threads

Was wondering if there have been any problems with the height adjustment threads ever failing under a heavy load to the coilover from medium-aggressive offroading. Not talking about jumping.

I got to thinking and it seems like those threads when offroading would be taking a lot of impact strees.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
