I ordered 4 swatched from prismatic powders and none of them were close enough for me to be happy, so I ordered 10 more last night. I hope one of them is. Prismatic powders recommended to me all gloss finishes and the finish of the Fox Shocks is pretty flat as it is anodized. Hopefully I can find a match, or I will be doing black as well, or just leaving them the ugly silver which I really didnt want to do.

If you find one let me know as I would consider redoing them. I also thought about that dark gray that's on the shock as well, but I was lacking time so went with black.

Well I received all 10 color swatches today and NONE of them matched close enough to for me to be happy.

I know that I under the truck in the shade, it will be hard to tell a few shades off, but not of them seemed to be even close. I may just powder them black

I have a message into Eibach for them to call me back as they did a set during R&D and they may possibly have a color code, if they decide to call me back. Ill be up their ass to get the answer for us and many more on this forum however, lol.

well 2 calls and 2 messages, Eibach has yet to get back to me from their engineering department. Hopefullly they call me tomorrow or I am just going to go with black. Not at all what I want, but the silver is terrible. Eibach did know the color code of the silver however, lol.

I think the reason it's been difficult to find the proper paint code in prismatic is because you're searching through the oranges. I found this one which looks pretty close just based off the actual powdercoated car parts.


look at their gallery to find closer matches of actual parts that were painted in real life pictures. I know different pictures and shades can affect matching but looking at real life pictures can give a better idea of various lighting conditions and contrasting with other parts.
