    Ok finally got the weekend to start this install my question is has anyone put or used some thin plastic or anything to keep from corrosion between the top coil aluminum and the frame mount to keep things from corroding aluminum and steel don't mix we'll and noticed after pulling out my revtec that the top alum plate is corroded so to keep from doing the same to these pretty toytecs :) can I put like 3m or something like it as coating to keep this from happening again ?!? Something real thin obviously not to after the lift

    Good point about the moisture
    Thanks I'm thinking the window tint should work maybe only one layer cut out and stuck on just something to keep from direct alum to steel contact

    I have never heard anyone calling the Toytec spacers pretty. :)

    A coat of lithium grease on the top surface of the spacer will last a long time and displace any moisture. Just be sure to wipe off any excess from three studs after you have seated the strut in place.
