Can you paint your shocks?

    I have the OME shocks coming in the mail. I was wondering if I could paint them? Wanted to paint them flat black (I don't really care for the yellow). Was just wondering if this would hurt anything.

    Thanks

    You should be able to. Sand them, and prime them propperly, and you should be good.

    Be a real pain to touch up, assuming you're painting them because you prefer that appearance, but there's no reason you can't do it...
