Both high-performance and entry-level shock absorbers often fall victim to rust. Since your rig’s tires are constantly throwing around dirt and debris, your shocks often see accelerated wear, thus leaving the shocks more vulnerable to rust. An easy way to protect and clean your absorbers is by spraying them with WD-40. Using a Scotch-Brite pad with the WD is also helpful to remove corrosion buildup. Daystar also offers new polyurethane shock armor to protect against gravel rash.
