Yes they are. I recently replaced all 6 of mine because one day I noticed a hairline crack down the side of one. ( second picture) I was shocked to find 3 out of 6 had problems, with the worst being cracked along the base.

I'm not sure if this was due to over torquing them when I did my coilovers - I believe the torque on these is only 25ftlbs - which I could easily see myself going over.
