the boot will keep the salty moisture inside and have a tendency to rip. the best solution is to wash your rig regularly.Regardless of coilover choice what is the best way to protect them during the winter? Do the coil boots do well or should they be ok as long as you keep them clean?
if anything it may make it a little bit harder to turn the first time you adjust them but it should not be too hard with a spanner wrench...or before you re-assemble them run the adjuster ring threw the threads all the way and i think that problem would be solved if there even is a issue with that....just don't go crazy with the lacquer and do a heavy spray job. you could also cover the threads with blue Painters tape but the salt would probably rust the threads if they are not protected and that would make it hard to adjust also.That is a good idea, do you think that would mess up the threads at all?
Maybe you should try including a link to the thread you are talking about....just a thoughtok if you bothered to look up that thread i was refering to........
a, youd know that the shock shafts rust no matter what brand (hoes seem to do best). pitted shaft = leaky seals = my main reason for not gettin em.
b, you could delay the corrosion on the bodies collars etc by coating them but every time u adjust the collar youll have to recoat that spot (dr co's seem to have that covered w a nickel nitride somethin talkin outta my ass coating)
c, youll learn that some people know absolutely nothing about harsh winter conditions and offer opinions that are not feasable. (you would not believe the # of times it was suggested that I should wash the co's after every salty day. ummmm up here most any day is a salty day in the winter and im sure as hell not gonna be caught dead under the truck in -40 weather, every day, all winter long. yeah great suggestion.) i suggested that someone should do a comparison of all the major brands. a couple hundred freeze thaw cycles in salt water but there have been no takers.
if u really want co's gett em for the summer and set up your old top plates w some ome 882's and shocks for winter.
