I have decided to change into stiffer ones.

Should I buy Chrome or "near chrome" silver powdercoated springs?

I have polished stainless steel A-arms, so chrome will look best when new, but is chrome springs "show, not go"?
Which of them will look best after some years of use?

See post #4. Those are chrome AFCO's and have two full seasons on them and they look as good as the day I installed them. Be aware that all companies don't do as good a job on the plating as the first set that I bought (QA1) were @#$% and returned for credit. Too bad you aren't closer as I have my original too heavy for the car progressive rate take offs that might have worked with a bottom coil removed and ground smooth
