Default Re: How to treat the new Front Leaf Spring

Not to be a stick in the mud but wouldn't it be better to paint each leaf before applying slip plate?

Sure where the leafs rub the paint may flake off but everywhere it doesnt rub would be coated with paint to prevent rust and then with the 2nd preventative of rust the slip plate would be there.

what killed alot of the leafs i see is water getting trapped between each leaf and causing pits. If its painted and greasy it should outlast you.
