Why is this ? :biggrin:
reverse flow cylinders were junk. Ur best option at the time was to design a a sleeve to hold a standard cylinder. But hydroholics has some nice designs to give u a sleek look with performance and not having to resort to reverse flow junky cylinders.

True ,the Hydroholics have a sweeet design, and the new Powerball for the top is kick ass too...

But I do make a superior reverse flow, but in only 6's and 8's for the people that will still use a coil.We also offer a complete kit with top bearing cup and all ;)

135 and 145 per pair.

I bought the hydrohaulics cylinders for my mac setup.

Iv'e had all kinda cylinders through out the years.

I'd say Hydrohaulics cylinders are the best so far

2 reasons

1) The top of the strut is constantly turning due to the steering. Turning plus a swivel fitting up there = leaky leakerson

2) The shaft of the cylinder holds lots of side force, especially when going into a corner - I wouldn't want that with a hollowed out cylinder shaft.

or weak bulkhead fitting holding the cylinder in up top
