    V-6 Rear Springs

    Whats your guys opinions on using rear springs from a v-6? Right now I'm just goin for looks, but in the future want to go the strano/koni route. So didn't want to spend too much on something I was gonna change anyway, and I knew this was a sorda common mod.
    Here's how she sits now:

    V6 springs sit higher and are softer.

    Hmmm...

    The black car looks like it has a minimal drop on it.


    This is my car with ProKit front springs and V6 (1994) rears.

    your bird looks like it has the sport appearance package, wich is like the RS kit for firebirds. I think RS's are lower too and have the Ground effects-so that's probably the case

    no it has the wings west body kit (except the front lip which has been ripped off by a water puddle ). and i know what you mean but im not looking at the height off the ground, im lookin at the gap from the top of the tire to the bottom of the quarter. in fact the wheels and tires that are on my ta were on the bird. the 275/40's in the rear rubbed when i would hit a dip in the road too fast in the v6 bird and on the ta they dont. but that could be the fact that the v6 springs are softer.
