    I was walking towards my truck and noticed the bolt is rusted? On a 2012 less than 2 months.



    Btw, both sides are rusted :D


    Rear driver side (shock location).

    Don't worry about it... by the time you replace those rear shocks, you can just cut them off worst case. Metal rusts, just wait 6 months and see what's got rust on it :D

    I've got an '06 and mine look better than that.... Of course I "Corrosion Free" my truck every 18 months..... It's a necessity if you live up in the Great White North, where we fully support our salt mines all winter.....

    I'd not worry man... as long as the rust is outta site....

    Good luck....
