Don't know if anybody else has experienced this problem, but tough dog adjustables have a dinky little plastic knob on the bottom of the shock.

I have a Troopy which means the shocks/springs hang pretty low in the back. In my first outing with them, both the knobs snapped off. I can still adjust them (Painstakingly) with a screwdriver.

4way want quote "awww $10 to $20 bucks maaaattttee" for a replacement.

I laughed, I'll stick to the screwdriver thanks BUD!

I was told that I should rotate the shocks so the knobs are inaccessible (both to me and the rocks)

Apart from that, they are great schocks, I love em, adjustable from jawbreaking to terribly soft.

I copped the same recommendation- the only problem is that I cant have them facing any otehr direction than forwwards as there is badly-located axle in the way.
Why didnt toyota think of this when they designed their car around the tough dogs?

I guess its just more motivation to get the in-cab adjuster.
