Default Sokie Tech hood dampers

Just wondering if anybody has any experience with the Sokie Tech hood dampers being sold on eBay? They are selling for $80 shipped for the carbon version.

Thanks for any info and/or reviews.

The eBay listing only says the dampers are stainless. No mention of the hardware. They do have a 1 year warranty though. Not sure if that covers the hardware as well.

Thanks for the input.

The shock bodies are carbon fiber so that shouldn't rust. Any specific type of grease? What about painting/clear coating the hardware? I do have some touch up paint i could use and then shoot them with some rattle can clear?

Thanks again.

I just placed my order. They told me it would be about 9-10 days before they arrive from Tawain. I ordered them without the sticker/emblem so they look cleaner.

I'll post a review after they arrive and I get them bolted on.

Well I finally received these, and got them installed. I just finished a quick reveiw on them.
