Coil springs

Hey I'm just wondering if u can get different colored coil springs out there anywhere. I've seen red ones online but here in town I've seen people with cool green ones or yellow. I live in Canada so anything in the country would be appreciated.

I think it just depends on the manufacturer. Mine are gray from RC so I assume to just have to look at different lift kits.

x2 on the spray paint, if you must have colored springs. $3 for a can is a pretty cheap mod.

Only problem with spraying them is that eventually they have a habit of flaking. Try using Krylon Fusion since usually that rubber or plastic coating on the outside.

Spray paint for plastic, pretty good idea, since the springs will be flexing... It'll probably still flake off, but it's cheap enough that repainting every so often isn't a big deal.

Ya I was wondering about the paint flaking off because of flexing. So does the Krylon stuff spray in in the same way?

Yup. I used it on my fender flares recently and it's holding up great. Donno so much about coil springs though.

Stumbled upon this with the same question about the coils. Painting seems to be the best route but I would be worried about the eventual chipping. I think you could solve this problem by using plastidip (just google it if not familiar). Its definitely flexible, cheap, and if you get tired of the color its nice and easy to remove. I will definitely be doing it to my coils when I buy a lift in the next couple of weeks.
