Powder coat springs?

I know some of you may not think itís worth it but Iím getting ironman4x4 lift kit and I canít stand the lime green springs that may show. Anyone powder coat their springs? Iím deciding what color to do it and would love some photos and suggestions. Thanks!

Why not just buy from a brand with a color you like? By the time you buy the springs then pay for them to be changed you'll have spent the difference if there was a price savings.

Also, I don't believe you'd powder coat them, they have a type of gel coating since they flex.

I have Ironman springs and you hardly even see them unless wheeling and get the rear up in the air.

PC stays on the spring just fine, PC shop strips the "gel coating " and apply their coat

Can you see the back springs at all if Iím just doing a 2 in lift. I can save some money by powder coating only the front 2 springs. I already have the kit and I have some time before the install date.

Ah ok, didn't realize it handled the flexing so well. Odd that spring manufacturers don't utilize it then, maybe due to cost?

I have the HD 2" springs, which means the truck sits taller from the increased resistance of HD springs, and you cannot see the springs unless you crawl underneath the rear.

I'll scrounge up some pics for you.

You literally have to stick your head in the rear wheel well to see just the bottom of them if from the side. And I'm including the extreme angles it takes for when you can see them, though even this was crouching down.

Thanks for the photos! Ok I that confirms I don't need to coat the back - I just care about the side profile where you can kind of see the front springs.
