    Default Experience with shocks from RC leveling kit?

    I'm planning on purchasing the Rough Country full leveling kit soon. Has anyone purchased this kit with the shocks? I'm concerned that the shocks are not high quality since the kit is so cheap. What are your thoughts regarding the durability of these?

    Sorry if this is a repeated thread. I searched all over and couldn't find one specifically discussing the shocks.

    I've had them on my truck for a year now, they're still working but I can't believe how rusty they got after just one winter. The top of the shaft that doesn't go into the shock often (if ever) is completely rusted, and even the painted body is rusting around every one of the seams.

    Thanks for the input, Greg (NICE NAME!). Anyone else have input about these shocks?
