you would need to use something flexable, i would think body paint would work, just make sure you clean them off good before you paint, use denatured alchahol or a good degreaser.

painting your springs won't work, it may appear to work, then you start driving your car and it will crack off and look like crap. the coating on them is powder coating. your best bet is to strip the current coating off and leave them silver!

If they're white, you could boil them in fabric dye
