    Good evening everyone!

    Just a quick question for all those suspension buffs out there. Does anyone know about suspension corrosion, mainly in the New England weather with the hard road salts? I believe I read somewhere that King shocks are more resilient but nothing about other brands.

    Has this ever been mentioned before? I would love a King set up mainly for the protection from the crap on the road but I truly don't have needs for such a kit.

    All brands will be about equally susceptible. Wrap the bodies in 3M film while they're new, keep them waxed everywhere else, and lube the ball joints frequently. And keep it as clean as possible w/ frequent washes.
