I continue to run that shock, but it is now impossible to get a good seal, and oil leaks from around the shaft at a horrible rate, even with Green Slime. iíve given up refilling it until I can get a replacement shaft.
A second shaft has not peeled, but chrome has worn off, exposing copper underneath. It does still seem to hold oil, but the now exposed copper surface on the shaft is easily scratched, so itís only a matter of time before the leaking starts.
So, out of four shocks, two have shaft problems, while the other two are still in excellent condition. The truck has pretty much just run around on the lawn, some of that in snow and rain, but mostly itís been dry conditions. I clean/lube frequently, but there hasnít been much dirt/dust. Thereís been nothing notable or overly gritty that would cause increased wear really, so I just got a bad couple of shafts I guess. My experience otherwise has been very positive, so Iíll give some replacement shafts a try. If this happens again with new shafts, Iíll have to be giving up on these however, unfortunately. Thereís only so much I am willing to invest for such a short period of use, when that money could be going to other things on my wishlist.)
