Mine look tired, can see a few rust scabs on them, but it's expected for the age of mine, it's 13 years old! Few questions really, are the part numbers the same for the top and bottom? I take it they are the same part number and are the same length right? Secondly, would you risk powder coating them for re-using, or buy new ones? I ask this because I'm worried the part has fatigued over time, specifically by the rose joint where they snap. Or should I just buy a pair of new ones?
