If you are talking about an oil spray that is a once per year deal, it might be worthwhile. I know mine is starting to show some corrosion on the suspension/chassis bolts. I wouldn't do a ziebart type permanent undercoating.

That's exactly what I mean , the once a year or even every other oil spray. Was thinking that would save the undercarriage longer.
