Powder Coating Springs

Has anyone had their springs powder coated?

I found a decent set of Rubi Springs for 120 shipped ( is that a good price?)
(from a 4 door with tow package and hardtop)

I recently started powder coating stuff at my house, I was curious if it would affect the springs at all, I dont see how it will, but better safe than sorry.

I want to do for practice and just to see how it would look.

That would depend on how hot your baking oven gets. Heat treating springs is bad unless you know what you're doing. (I don't, so that's all I can say) I'm also thinking it would just crack off the first time the spring flexes.

Stock OEM Shocks? If so, not a good deal. You can get them free or for just a few $'s on the "Free" section of this form.

375-400 would be the baking tempature for 25 minutes


What about the price that the guy is asking?

X2 - be patient and sooner or later some freebies will pop up. I wouldn't pay more than $60 for all 4 used.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99Ę a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

The method of cooling will have an effect on the performance also. Such as water quench, oil quench or air dry with or without wrapping.I wouldn't screw with them. Go for the freebies.
