    V6 rear springs question

    Quick question for someone here. How do V6 rear springs compare in ride height to my WS6 rear springs ? Lower or Higher. I have BMR rear springs on my car right now and they are to low in my opinion with the spacer on top also. I kept my original WS6 springs and was thinking about putting them back in with out the top spacer and using just rubber hose. Or use a set of V6 springs which might help my car a little at the strip.Ride height is most important. My cut out hits when ever I hit a bump or a dip in the road.

    I think they sit higher personally.
    But not by much.

    Ok, I bet they do set a little higher. I think I will just put my original ones back in with the hose mod instead of the factory spacer and see how it sits.

    Really? I've parked my T/A (non WS6) next to a v6 before and the damn thing sat lower than my car. Then I got the BMR springs and get to enjoy flat Texas...

    could it be their tire height is smaller?

    they sit lower

    the spring rate is different so they compress and are lower.
