Default Cleaning coilovers (basic question)

Hi guys,

Basically i have a set of Tein flex coilovers on my EK9 and i was wondering if it would be ok to use a power/jet wash to give them a good clean ?

I am concerned pushing dirt somewhere where its not suppose to be but if other people do this time and time again without any issue i could just be over thinking.

Thanks for your time

Water pressure surely wont hurt them, hot soapy water, simple green, and probably even brake cleaner would all be fine to clean coilovers with.

I'd say you're just over-thinking it.
