Suspension Color Ideas and Opinions

I finally got around to ordering all my suspension pieces, wheels, tires, etc but now I need some help.

I decided on the Icon 4.5 Kit, Icon 4 Link, Icon Dual Stabilizers, and OUO Traction Bars and Traction Blocks.

I was thinking that since they are going on a white truck and the 4 link and traction bars will be visible, maybe it would look good to go ahead and powder coat the 4 link and traction bars white. The 4 Link comes standard with black powdercoat from ICON, the traction bars come standard in a silver color and I would have to wait a few extra weeks to get them in black.

Any suggestions? Please vote in the poll and let me know why you voted the way you did.

My truck as it sits now, minus the chrome running boards. I now have AMP power steps



These are the wheels im going with 22x10

White never looks good under the truck IMO. Gunmetal gray would look sick though.

I agree that the Gunmetal is a good idea but I did that on my 70 Chevelle that I built for SEMA last year and its not very noticable so I really wouldnt spend the extra money to re-coat all the suspension to do it gunmetal.

Thanks for the pictures. I agree that that much white doesnt look good under the truck. Its toooooo much. I think just the 4 link which is much smaller than the radius arms in the picture, and the ouo traction bars are smaller than the ones shown as well might look a little cleaner. Those pics help though....thanks

I think I am going to be sticking with all black. Does the icon stuff come gloss black or flat black? How about the OUO bars...if I get them black are they gloss or flat?
