The front would look stupid as it will sit high. Yes it will ride hard as there is alot less weight in a I6 engine.

Looks nice mate. I'd be interested to see what she looks like now.

Just out of curiosity, why did you opt for the EF front and vents for an EL? Not that there's anything wrong with that. Personally, I'd prefer the EF front (and so does Soulfire / YTMONT, not that he will admit it :lol: ).

there is only 40 kg difference between the 6 & the 8, so there wont be a huge difference with springs
