Painting the Leaf Springs?
 
I am considering buying someones used leaf springs, but they are a bit rusty. Has anyone ever painted their leaf springs to make them look nicer and prevent further rust? Or am I thinking like a crazy guy here?:confused:

no i paint mine, just use a wire brush or a angle grinder with a wire brush on it and remove all the rust, then dust them off and shoot a few light coats of good paint.

Should I take them apart to do this? Do I lubricate in between the leafs?
