    Fluid Film is great, I stock it in my store. On my shocks ive been using a product by Inox. Its worked great thus far. I use it becauxse I work on the beach and am often driving in sand/salt water. Also spend most my winter driving the Salton Sea roads so that salt mud kills stuff.

    Also could try DirtBagz on the shocks, I had them on for a while. They helped for sure.

    Its kinda yellowish until you apply it then its not really. Inox is gin clear though.

    Guys that want Fluid Film, I stock it and will give you 15% off and charge you exact shipping if you arnt local, none of that flat rate crap.
