I dont think any type of plastic or Line-X will work. The flex and adhesion would be an issue. I would just wipe on a thin layer of bearing grease....

well thats what i was afraid of, i didnt think it would be very flexable. i finally got the springs in last week. and gonna talk to the guy at my work about clear coating them, and see what his thoughs are on it.

You sure the clear wouldn't chip and flake just the same? Usually clear coat is the first thing to go on a car..plus u gotta make sure u scuff the surface very well before you spray...not shooting down ur idea I just dont see clear coat being that flexible

^^^ This is what I'm saying, That factory coating on the spings is heavy duty stuff, I'ts not designed to be coated by some off the shelf rattle can paint or clear. Rust will not form while a coating of oil or grease is on the surface. Just something to think about....

see the problem is they are down where the tire throws rocks and other harmful debris up and then it comprimises the paint/coating. and in the winter they are basically being sandblasted lol
