Just repaint them. I never seen a shock that does not eventually start to rust. Unless you have aluminum cased coil over. Or some other shock that has an aluminum or stainless steel housing.

Sounds good to me. But if you want the paint to last, I would sand them a bit, prime them, then spray them. Or I would roll them with tractor paint. Or if you have an air compressor buy a cheap spray gun for the air compressor and spray them with tractor paint. Tractor paint is harder paint by chemical make up so it will with stand the abuse they receive longer.

Bilstien has the newer line of Zinc coated shocks. I think they are less likely to rust, but we still cover them with clear adhesive plastic (laminate) especially on the steering stabilizer.
