Well, once you get the shock off, unscrew the preload adjuster all the way. Then (you might need two people to do this) press down on the spring with a metal bar or a big wrench, and compress it enough so you can pull out the two metal retainers.

Not too hard, but you'll most likely need an extra hand.

You should not "paint" the spring.. You should powder coat it..
