There is a new distributor & they trying to fix the previous issuses
They are giving 12mth unconditional warranty.
They did have some problems with the adjuster freezing up but that has now been sorted.
You must use the correct locktight & you must let it dry properly before installing shocks.
Get the right lenght shocks or use extended bumpstops as no shock will take constant bottoming out

Have Boss shocks on mine and I wouldn't buy them again, The eye was too narrow and the bush was about 15mm short of the washer once the washer was tight. Lucky I had some big washers in the tool box to space the thing out as I was leaving on a trip the next day.

I am guessing I have the early ones (about a year old) three of the four adjuster knobs have siezed, other one has snapped off, rock or log is the culprit I'll bet. And the car handled worse after the new shocks went on, the missus wont drive it and she loved driving the old GQ which had a four inch lift, this only has three inch.

My experience,

Ben

The fittings on the end are screwed on & need to be locktighted.
You should get the big eyes with the shocks
