i got my spax "TA" adjustable shocks and struts today from BAT.inc

I took em out of the box and it looks like they slid around some, on both shocks and a little on one of the struts theres small scratches in the paint-like-rubbery-coating-stuff that go to the metal, and on one of the shocks the rubber cap thing fell off (the little rubber cap where the body stops and the rod comes out), and on the other one its only stuck on half of it.

is this normal? will the paint scratch anyway? will it rust?
do you think i should send em back or just not worry about it?

Why don't you call BAT and ask them? They are nice people and I am sure will be happy to make sure everything is alright.

So do you think it might rust in those spots, or i should put something on em or send em back? or do you think they'll be ok? I dont care about the cosmetics, just the function basically. Im gonna call BAT in a minute and see what they say

i called BAT and the guy said it shouldnt rust but i could use some clear spray paint on the scratches to protect em, so i think im gonna do that to be safe.
