I use GT85 prior to fitting coilover socks, and they get a fresh spraying once a year or so depending on how much I've driven her...

I would not worry to much about coil overs rusting , everything else will rot out long before a fresh set of coil overs will

Isn't there a view that using socks can actually trap moisture inside the sock and cause more damage that way than if left exposed to the elements. Although maybe some of the more expensive socks might be made from a breathable material?

Not heard that one before Phil...

All I can go on is my own experience and Iíve had my Ohlins fitted on my 9 for about 5 years with Paulís coilover socks fitted and GT85.

Theyíve had a few touch ups with GT85 over these years when the cars been serviced but when I look at them now they still look brand new! Also no issues with the coilovers themselves either.

It could because my car is stored in a well insulated garage and only been driven on mice sunny days...

I also have the same system on my 6RS and again the coilovers look sparkling new still and no knocks etc.

So Iím happy with them fitted anyway...
