hey all, is there any way of telling if coil springs are standard EF/EL or out of a XR6 if they have been pulled out of a car?

thanks

XR springs will be slightly shorter. You would need to check the actual part numbers.

XR springs should have a touch of red paint/tape on them.

Check out rainoffire's XR6 wagon thread. I've posted spring free lengths in there.

Since you have XR6 wagon rear leafs, we've covered that also in that thread.
