to do it right (imo) take them off, take them apart (have a psare handy so you can keep driving it if need be), get them bead blasted a,d i would use a good black epoxy paint, and the appropriate clear too.

need to do mine all over again.... :rant: still has the paint on it, but i think ill really get into it when i send the bed out to be fixed, tailgate handle flipped, painted and line-x'd. id like to box the fram in, and i plan on using some vht epoxy chassis black. stuff is great.

Guess maybe someday I'll have a truck with a shiney undercarrage...

I like to clean things up with a steel brush and hit em with some RustX, but I go for the SemiGloss Black look, so it just looks clean... Oh well, as I said, maybe someday! :biggthump

i just want to paint them black, because i dont wanna take attention away from the rest of the truck. for those who took off the leaf springs, was it a pain in the ass to do this?

as long as you paint them black it should be ok, but any other coler would be gay. you will have to go over them at leat once a year.

LOL!!! It doesn't bug me, that's his own opinion. I ended up painting them black last year. The rust paint I used is similar to rustoleum.
