ST Coilover longevity question- opinions needed

I have a question with no definitive answer but I'm looking for some opinions/thoughts from fellow members. I'm in the market to revamp my suspension that's seen 100k+ miles and I'm looking at the ST coils due to their competitive pricing, however I drive my car daily including in the snow. About how long would you estimate these coils would last before they failed due to their lack of corrosion resistance? TIA!

have had them on my car for two winters now.... no problem. I spray them with that aerosol wax that turner sells, probably not needed since zinc coatings are pretty durable. this stuff http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-40...ing-spray.aspx
