    Coilover threads.

    What's the best product to keep my threads on my coilovers clean? I don't want them to rust that badly that I can't adjust them anymore.

    I've heard applying Teflon spray every so often is the best.

    Anyone else got any ideas?

    why would you need to adjust them?
    iv never had any seize up even after 2 years.
    copper grease would be ideal though. paint on liberally.

    copper slip/grease, general purpose grease would work too.

    LM2 Grease is best imo. It stays on, but washes off with a jet spray when you need to re-apply it once it becomes contaminated with mud and grit. I've used this on my coilovers since day one and after a year and a half there's no corrosion on them at all.

    Copper grease is a lot harder to get off.
