Good, shocks that won't rust???

Anyone know of some good shocks that won't rust up in under a year? my cheap skyjacker shocks are very rusty and they have been on for under a year. I know most cheap shocks will do this, do you think these will be better?

Those bilsteins are a good shock but i have seen terrible pictures of them corroding with a salty climate or mag chloride. I chose to go with rancho rs9000xl shocks and I love them. Thats not a bad price on those bilsteins tho.

In Michigan unless your buying aluminum or stainless steel shocks. Your shocks will start rusting in a year. Give any shock that has a steel casing and it will be rusty after one winter in Michigan.

Bilsteins have one of the worst coatings...if you are in a snowy, salty environment ..DO NOT GET THEM!!!

I recommend DR/Icon,...I've had them through 3 winters, living on the beach, and very salty roads...no problems

I know the Monroe Reflex shocks are one the the best, I guess I'll just have to use some under coating on them.
