When I received my 2.5" Old Man Emu new shocks, I had a lot of trouble removing the 20 year old rusty stock springs, so I took my time, and since I had time even more tile to kill, I decided to paint the springs red to match my '93 Jeep color. Since I was at it, I went ahead and painted the front differential cover. Ha!
Here are a few pictures. I think it looks awesome. Yes, it's purely cosmetic, but it's amazing what a few cans of paint can do
