Struts pistons keep breaking

#3
What brand shocks are you using?

I can't imagine what kind of forces it would be putting on it to break them like that...

Wait.

I see the problem, I think. It looks like it is relying on the bolts and the shock shaft to keep things centered, over a distance. That spacer isn't solid. That leaves a lot of room for things to shift, and it has no pivot bearing or use the original upper rubber bushing. The shaft won't like those shearing forces very much.

That's a terrible design... I think you need a different spacer. Either MarkMC (my preference) or I think Supreme Suspension uses a similar design Mark does.

I think your right man I’m going to take a look I have Marc’s wheel spacers they are awesome

I have Gabriel shocks now and I have broken a set of bilsteins already lol

I believe that supreme suspensions lift is an outside the strut lift which we refer too on offroadtb as the "Death lift." If that is the case you really need to return it immediately. I recommend Liftmeister.

False...

Supreme is a copy of Mark's liftmeister lift and is fine.

That's ReadyLift/SDT/HeavyMetal that does that.

An outside the strut lift would have the studs to mount them. There are no studs because they're an inside the strut lift (spring preload). This is the same as Mark's 2.5" lift. Mark's 3" lift has studs because it also replaces the upper mount, while his (and Supreme's) 2.5" lift uses the factory style upper mount.

That makes sense I am more familiar with Mark's new lift that replaces the top of the strut. Very well.
