Greetings,
About 7 years ago I purchased Gaz adjustables. They have worked well over the years but after the last 2 drives the front end feels sloppy and the wheels started to rub the wells. My guess is the adjustable shocks have seen better days. Anything else I should look out for?
Thanks. Jason

I've never had any shocks (adjustable or otherwise) that I felt were any good after 60k miles.

But I have also noticed that adjustables get a little bad after being at one setting for a long time. To me it seems to help if you soften them all the way, drive around a bit, and then go back to your normal setting. It's as if all the the valving takes a setting if left too rigid for too long.

I thought I read once that temperature change is hard on shocks and struts in general, like if your car sits outside in summer and winter it breaks them down.
I have spax adjustables and I am in need of new shocks, they are shot.
