    Has anyone ever tried to powdercoat coils on their lift kit? Im going to put a billy 5100 lift on in the spring and was wondering what it would look like if I could make the coils swb to match my taco. Im thinking that the powdercoating may just crack off if there is to much compression of the coil if a large bump was hit.
