don't feel it is high enough quality to be associated with. I would be
happy to set you up with a Dinan or TC Kline Racing suspension, those I can
stand behind. I have seen too many owners unhappy with these lesser setups
long-term and end up changing them again at some point in the future."

what do you really say to that ha ha ha oh well

My KW v3 was rusted in the first winter.
Springs were browned wherever they touched themselves.
The piston rod was pitted from rust in the area that never goes into the oil/gas seal.

They worked fine, but being 'stainless', I expected them to handle winter salt better than the usual stuff.

That sucks. Only water my car see's is from the garden hose. Garaged winters.
