I have a hard time determining if what I am looking at is rust or dirt. Before taking these pictures I did an undercarriage wash, but not sure how effective it was...

That is a teraflex HD trackbar that supposedly has rust on it. Also, I did put a wire brush to one of the rusted spots and it did clean it up pretty well. I just can't understand why the calipers are rust free and right next to them is all this rust on the inside of the tire.

I took a cordless drill with a wire brush and knocked off all of the surface rust and painted them with flat black spray paint. Looks 100 times better and offers some protection from further rust.

The ends of the axles are called knuckles right? Can I plastidip them after removing rust with wire brush and naval jelly?

Has anyone else experienced rust with their teraflex HD trackbar? I can't believe the paint has deteriorated after just 8 months.
