I don't think so. The springs are under constant blasting of road debris kicked up from the tires. Think of them bring lightly sandblasted everytime you drive. Plasti dip will not withstand this at all. Also once plasti dip starts to peel it just keeps going.
The only coating durable enough to bend, as well as withstand the dirt and rocks, is powder coating.
