The Bilstein PSS9 Suspension enables the user to adjust the vehicle's ride height by adjusting the threaded shock bodies (front) and the threaded rear spring perch (rear). This system features both front coil over and fully adjustable monotube gas pressure shocks with nine levels of performance valving that range from performance street comfort to competition, along with progressive rate coil springs. The PSS9 system lets you set your car low and tight for optimum performance or back to a more stock like ride height and handling characteristics. Ride height adjustments can be made on the vehicle without removing the suspension. The solid aluminum spring seat and lock nut allows a selective adjustment of the vehicle's ride height. Spring travel and vehicle body height change, but the spring seat remains pre-loaded throughout the allowable range of adjustment. The 9 is PSS9 stands for 9 levels of shock dampening adjustment. The front and rear shocks feature a adjustment dial that allows the user to dial in specific dampening adjustments. This is great for preparing a vehicle for street or track use.

Directly from Bilstien:
"There is a protective coating. However, in certain atmospheres subject to salt more that 10 months out of the year, there could be some rust or corrosion issues"
