Is this going to be a show vehicle? If not I don't see the advantage of spending that kind of money on leaf springs. Are the springs new or are you looking to replace them with something else in the future. I do like your attention to detail though. Post some pics if you can. The body paint sounds really cool. Good luck...Gunny Out!!

Unless that is a show truck you are wasting money IMO

The leafs slide on each other as they flex which would quickly wear into your powder coat. If you want the leafs pretty, paint them so they can be routinely touched up. Power coat is not a good option for this application

I would agree with the previous posts. Don't waste your $$ on powder coating. If you're concerned about rust you can use rattle can bed liner or have them painted professionally which would include a step of spraying a sealer on them. While this is not as expensive as powder coating its only a delay of the inevitable if its going to be used on or off road.
