Just curious to know if anyone has had any problems with salt/sand with coil overs, specifically SAW's. Live in NH and salt/sand does a number on the underbody of the truck. Want a front end suspension with just about 2" lift and something thats going to suck those little bumps up at high speeds . . . and thats also gonna hold up to the elements. Any info or suggestions would be great. Thanks.

I've had my set on for almost 3 years now and still really solid. The drivers side coil paint is starting to flake but other then that there in pretty good shape considering there is plenty on salt and sand around here. Had a nasty squeek from that side as well but re-adjusted the spherical washer on the lower arm and it's been fine since.

Bah, I consider Calgary salt free when compared to Ontario :p One of the lakes in my home town (Sudbury) is almost salene now thanks to salt run off.

Great thread about coilovers and corrosion. All coilovers are susceptible to corrosion if not taken care of. It isnt an isolated problem with saws...
