Lookin at getting some springs for my au, just wondering if the heavy 5l in the front will affect the height? Wanting to get king ssl's all round, just worried that the engine weight might drop the front too much?

pretty sure there's different springs for the v8 and 6 models because of the weight difference.

Technically, yes it should.

The V8 is about 40kg heavier than an I6.

Although strangely, the King Spring catalogue lists the I6 and V8 springs as the same part.

Yeh thats why i was wondering, because there is one part for both.

I might just get the ssls for the front and if theyre too low i can probably sell them and just buy some sl's i duppose!
