I have 12 way QA1's on my Impala with stock springs. I drive it in the summer on the street and at all kinds of race tracks. The adjustability is a very handy feature.

Do a search. I have had the seals on three out of four of the HALs on my car blow and it's happened to at least a couple of other people who run them on cars in areas where it gets cold in the Winter. If your car won't see any Winter use, or if HALs done something to fix the problem since, you would probably be ok, is my guess (but I really don't know), but if you think you might start driving it in the Winter, I'd pass unless HAL can tell you they fixed the problem.

I had a seal on mine just go out randomly when the temperatures never dropped below 50*. it had happened within 3 months of purchase. They gladly fixed the shock. They've been fine since, but I put the car up in Nov to avoid the cold temp issue. I did however drive around in 40degree (at coldest) temps with no problem.

Same here. Never had a problem. Several Mustang guys in my area driving in the winter. They go 3/4 in the Winter because of the thicker oil.
