Have y’all replaced factory coilovers yet?

    I feel like my 2015 Pro Suspension is performing fine, but really have concerns about where I’m at from a corrosion standpoint. Truck has 102K miles and 8 years living between the Laguna Madre and the Gulf of Mexico. I’m looking to invest $’s in key items to get another solid 3-5 years (or more) out of her. I’m considering talking to some local shops about a full suspension upgrade/lift/wheels/tires, but I’m also thinking staying factory with new components as I really do enjoy what the stock Pro has been like. Kinda just looking for general thoughts and experiences.

    ADS Racing was claimed to be some of the best at corrosion resistance and what I put on my Tacoma in 2018. After 3 unprotected salty winters in the northeast and Midwest even they were starting to get pretty crusty. The top nuts on the rear shocks were flaked up to the point that I rounded them off trying to tighten them up.

    Whatever you go with, salt ain't gonna be kind to it. Some sort of corrosion protection like PB Blaster Surface Shield would be my top priority. I'm moving back to the salt belt here before long and will definitely be coating all my vehicles religiously. I grew up on gravel roads and salty winters so just assumed everything rotted out, then learned preventative maintenance on corrosion protection can be huge on the longevity of your vehicles once I moved away.

    If you are happy with your current suspension the 6112s would probably be the most similar in terms of performance I believe. Also, to prevent rust on new components use this stuff: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0000AXYA0/?coliid=I2B9XIFWE97QRU&colid=QLWKXVPKN54I I put it on bare metal where I chipped paint off of coilover springs and after one salty winter the bare metal was 100% rust free.
