    looking into ICON. Wondering if anyone has had issues with rusting. Or if you have found an easy solution to this (besides the obvious $15 under wash once a week) I live in Maine and salt is a big problem.

    Not sure what you are seeking.

    Are you asking if they oxidize faster/more that say an OE unit?

    There are no easy solutions to salt.

    I'm not sure about Icon. I know that some people who live on the east coast say that Fox's aluminum shock bodies start pitting and corroding pretty quickly. ADS is supposed to have a good corrosion resistant coating but I don't have any experience with their coilovers or shocks.
