are your springs made of nylon? or aluminum?

i think your best bet will be either paint or powder coat. something opaque.

get a pack of black rit dye powder. get an old pot and fill it about half way with water add dye and bring to a low boil put springs in for about 3 to 5 min. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHICH ONES THEY ARE. Do this by either scraping the bottom of the spring or put a zip tie on the when you dip them in the dye.
