Yes, the paint will chip off the springs, because the springs are made to flex. Painting springs is a waste of time and money. Instead of doing all that, just wire brush (or use a wire wheel on a drill) over the whole thing and apply one of the many rust treatments like POR 15 or Extend ( made by LocTite and comes in spray cans) to neutralize the rust.
