Can you paint shock absorbers?

Last Updated: 25th May, 2021

You can paint them, but keep in mind the shocks do get warm. Good prep with a good paint should do fine. For the boots, you can get new ones in your choice of color for under $5 ea and would hold up better than painting them. Yes, but keep in mind the new paint will chip off much easier than the factory coating.

Keeping this in view, can I paint my suspension springs?

Choose the color you want to paint the springs. There are also spray paints specially formulated for suspension parts that are more durable. Spray on a light coating of paint. Let it dry for a minute or so, and then apply a thicker coat, ensuring even coverage everywhere on the spring.

One may also ask, can you powder coat shock springs?

Do not be stupid – DO NOT USE GASOLINE! Simply put, powder coating is a process where dry paint particles are sprayed onto the surfaces on the spring. Then the springs are heated which melts and bonds the paint particles to the metal. Painting should not have to be explained.

How do you prepare a chassis for painting?

To prepare your chassis, the first thing to do is gather your materials, which include: a PRE paint solution, electric sander, stripper or blaster, lint-free hand towels, and some epoxy primer. Using an epoxy primer will yield the best results when painting your chassis.

Can you sandblast coil springs?

By the time you put enough heat into a spring to hurt it, you'll be long done with the blasting. Beyond that, powder coating requires an hour or so at 375 to 400 degrees. Even that is not enough to hurt your springs. You may have noticed many aftermarket springs are powder coated, particularly coils.
