The idea is the same, but aren't the parts different specs. ie. you can't take ED spring and put them in an EL.

:? Oops says data_mine! :lol:
EA-EL all have the same springs... only difference between any of them is the V8's usually get stiffer and longer fronts.

ed-el springs and shocks are the same, only problem you will come across is that eb/ed front struts might not have the little holding thing for the abs cable, in this case, cable ties are your friends! lol
