    titanium

    ok, first are gpm titanium turnbuckles any good?

    second what do you think about the TiN coated shock shafts? i have them and for the extra $ i dont think they were worth it. my shocks still leaked after getting them and they still get scratches in them. i didn't know if anybody else has noticed a signifigant advantage.

    Yes on the turnbuckles.

    I have not seen anything bad about the shafts... I did not realize they would have anything to do with leaky shocks though. Usually it is seals that keep fluid where it is supposed to be, not shafts.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The TiN coated shafts will still scratch but it just takes a lot longer for it to happen. The scratches on the shafts will slowly wear your seals which causes the shocks to start leaking even more.
