    Got the lift installed and noticed the shop dinged the coils in a few spots. Im afraid they might rust where the paint is chipped off. Anyone know if they can rust?

    I would think that if there is bare metal showing then they could rust

    technically, any steel can rust eventually. just hit it with some spray paint and you should be good
