    If he attends car shows, and uses mirrors to show off the undercarriage, like some of us do, you can see them then.

    I would get them powdercoated.

    well a friend of a friend might do it...i just have to see how much he'll charge me. They look nice and i like the fact they say strano but i wish he had color options, i dont do car shows but i still want it to look clean since my new rims and rotors are going to attract alot of attention

    I've got an all red and black theme going and didn't bother with my Stranos. You can't see them while on the ground...and even in the air it's tougher to see. I also didn't want to subject my springs to 475 degree heat in an oven for an hour.

    My sway bar is stock. If you meant the red bar, that's the poly/rod panhard bar from UMI. My rearend is a stock 10 bolt, but with 3.73's. For peace of mind, I added the TA Diff. cover to "tighten up" everything.

    Dude, Sam's are powdercoated so bottomline powdercoating STEEL springs won't hurt the properties TRUE STORY!!!

    Powdercoating will not mess with the temper of spring steel, and technically they would be in an oven for 10 min (at part metal temp. of 400 degrees)
