yo! Congrats!

I like the Bilsteins; bought from AJ USA
$253.80 for Four Bilsteins from http://www.ajusa.com/ in 2012

http://www.ajusa.com/Bilstein-Monotube-Shock-Absorbers-and-Struts-c2ddev10dfq6ba3.html

my KYB Gas-Adjust shocks started rusting out by month 3; KYB rep said in e mail reply to my concern that is is Not normal...but would Not authorize a return under the life-time guarantee.



This pic was taken in JAN 04 when they were 2 years old

That sucks! I've never had a problem with bilsteins. So I'll stick to them! Thanks!

Hell, my Rough Countries looked 10x that bad after just over a year and they had never even been driven on. They were on the truck sitting in the yard. I had another set on my frame off super cab that did the same thing. Less than 500 miles, no rain, no winters and they still rusted. I stripped them, shot them with epoxy and then cleared them. Now they have held up for like 8 years.

YO LL,
The Bilstein are belt about 75/% Better than the KYs (KY instead of KYB because as Joe Pesci once said, :They'll XXXX you every time"); piston rod, welded upper retaining nut and nut and bolts that are not rusted
