Re: Nitron Springs - how long should they last?

Hi mate! FWIW, my Nitrons are about 16 months old and done 3k miles and they look dusty, but otherwise in perfect condition. I did nothing to prepare them, just bolted them straight on and left it at that. Maybe you just got unlucky? I know that stinks, but it’s the best I can offer :/

Yes, it is in #138.
It is in my 2004 model too - as I found out when I left a dashcam in there, powered on all weekend, lol 😆
