before i put these on is there anything to put on the lowering threads to keep them looking new? i had h&r coils before and after awhile there was so much junk in the threads i couldnt adjust the height anymore.
any suggestions i wil appreciate
thanks

since you live where it gets cruddy, GO buy anti-seize. you can put them together and using the instructions find the general area in which you'll be setting height. once there, then put on the anti-seize. this way you won't have it all up and down the threads. i'd start dead center in the measurement range as a place to put the perches before installing.

i have anti seize actually but i know it doesnt stick well like if water runs on it so i wasnt sure it woudl be that great for what i was looking for
but i guess if i get the adjusting parts to run through it that will help come winter time

it'll stay on in water just fine. your only purpose is to get it to still work on the threads, which it will. plummers tape would make adjusting a pain
