Default Anyone actually leave camber plates in over the winter??

I live up in Toronto, so I thought we would have pretty similar climates.

I'm planning on buying some PDE camber plates, for my prodrive/koni strut setup. I usually run this setup all year round, and was wondering about the feasabilty (or stupidity ) of running the plates in the winter too.

I just wasn't sure if the possibilty of corrosion from the salt or sand getting in between the plates would hinder the sliding action or fuse them in place all together.

Good to hear that others have had no problems with them installed over the winter!!!

You could always throw some anti-seize between the plates if it would help you sleep better at night.
My PDE's are staying on for the winter.

I ran my plates all winter with no problems. The first time I adjusted them in the spring just took a little extra effort but all was fine after that.

Same thing I was thinking, maybe white lithium sprayum grease or some thick chain lube spray.
