Broken SAW coil overs

As i'm changing my oil and both sway bar end links i notice something... A BROKEN COIL OVER! To be honest, i never even felt any difference! LOL! So I need to come up with a new solution (cheaply) for my 3" front lift.

I have the rear lifted 3" with a 1.5 AAL and a 1.5" shackle... the entire truck has 1.5"Body Lift... so thats okay... but now the front must not even have 2" of lift because of the broken SAW... I need to come up with a new cheap option to replace the front suspension.. I was thinking OME... give me your thoughts.. heres the pics...

Holy crap dude! What did you do and why are your threads so rusty?

In My opinion, if one went out, the other will probably do the same. Replace them both.

I live in NJ, this is one of the states that uses the most road salt you've ever seeen.

Daily driving.. crazy right.

Just Buy new coils for them and have a shop put them on. Coils on their site are like 80 each so if you do both shocks thats only $160.

want my paypal address so you can send me the money? These things are less then 18 months old man...

i guess i will end up getting new ones, or some other option.. maybe the OME? not sure how i'm going to proceed with these... i'm just not happy that these products didn't last longer then 18 months.. not happy at all.
I got Icon's on mine, How much do you want for them? I got a buddy that wants some coilovers
