    Coil spring replacements

    The coil springs on every one of my shocks are all rusted up and ugly, and instead of sandblasting and painting them, Ive decided to just replace them. What are the specs of the springs for direct replacement, and has anyone experimented with different springs on the coil overs? For future corrosion protection (price to pay for driving and parking on sandy beach ramps), I was also thinking about Plasti-dipping the coils. Good/bad idea?

    Paying the price for this - my sway bar is all rusted up as well.

    Fronts are 10" 325 lbs, if you have adjustables on the rear they are 10" 300 lbs. If you have original Jag springs on the rear you need to paint them.

    Thanks Alan! I have the adjustables all around. I'll check Summit to see what's available.

    Do you have Carrera shocks, if so they are called QA1 now.

    Yes - I have the Carreras. The shocks themselves don't look too bad, but the (once) beautiful chrome springs are not so beautiful anymore.
