I've found the Eastwood aerosol chassis black paint is absolutely fantastic
applied straight onto grease free metal - not so good over primer though. I
don't think they do a "chassis blue" version though....

Smooth Hammerite isn't upto the job as it's far too brittle. I used it about
8-9 years ago and the wisbones etc were chipped before they even got onto the
car. I've compared notes on this with plenty of other people over the years and
most seem to agree about it - your mileage may vary.

Not in the case of the Eastwood (or similar) specialised suspension paints,
though it really depands what product you decide to use,
