if you're trying to get original looks, i believe that the originals were coated w/ cosmolien, not painted. shackles, i think a dull gray zinc finish. if you are using the originals that were put on the car on day one, might want to check them out very carefully especially if you are going to the strip. very rare for originals to last this long without some cracks in them. new ones will run about $150 a pr for leafs. plus the hdw and shackle rubbers.
