I believe the only parts, that may have rust, are the sway bars, tension struts and coils. Everything else is new. I'm holding off on the spindles, for now. When getting rid of all rust, are you referring to surface rust? I'll post a picture, tomorrow, of the sways so you can see the rust.Get rid of all the rust (if any since you're in NC) and avoid painting parts together (such as the wheel bearing to the spindle).
I am looking at POR-15 to use on non-maintenance parts like sway bars.
