    dumb question

    Ok dont give me to much $h!t....

    So i bought qa1 coilovers and shocks about 2yrs ago and...... havent put them on yet, i just really havent had time and usually when i do have time i just end up driving th car instead. i worked so much this past summer that i only had it out a handfull of times.

    My ? is this, i have some time comming up now and the weather is to crapy to drive it, coilovers and shocks dont go bad just sitting in the boxes do they?
    I mean they gotta sit on the shelf at summit ect. till someone buys them right? Do you think there still ok or do i have some expensive paperweitghts, i dont know much about shocks and struts, just how to put them on but i took them out of the box and they still have pressure when i pull and push them by hand.

    The seals can be damaged from non-use.

    You will not really know until you (finally) install them. Keep an eye on them after the install if they start leaking you will know...

    Go ahead and install them it's the only way you'll find out. Keep your fingers crossed.
