if u know they suck then why would u put something on ursons car that sucks and could leave him stranded..why don't u just do it properly the first time with a piece of mind knowing its better and more reliable...the cost of regular cylinders isn't that much money to do the job with more reliable components....and they are still fairly easy to constuct the casing mounts to hold ur regual cylinder in place

If you get good rev flows from pro hopper or if black magic makes'm . If you install them right. They are fine. The biggest prolem with most rev flow installations is that they are not allowed to pivot easily. The mounts at the top of the strut are usually solid metal to metal. or a rubber bushing. This causes the cylinder to bind sligtly when extented and the seals wear out quickly. Especially in mcpherson struts where the steering pivots on the strut. There has to be some type of pivot in the top mount.

The problem is the swivel fittings on top.  The strut will turn when the wheel is turned and swivel + turning = bad times
sometimes. If you use a thread sealer and the hose is given the right kind of slack to move it will be fine. One upper mount that I made back in the day held the fitting and hose in place but still alowed the right pivot to prevent the cylinder from binding. The only bad part is that the turning (steering) was tranferred down to the cyinder casing. So it was just more wear and tear on the seals.
